Jason first picked up the electrical bass at the early age of nine. He had told everyone at school that could play bass. In reality, he couldn’t but his father could. Jason ran to him for a ‘crash course’ and within two weeks time his father had taught him enough chords and notes to make it through the high school talent show. It was the beginning of Jason’s musical career.
He and Gil had instantly became serious partners. He studied for several hours a day and then he began taking private lessons. It wasn’t long before his music teacher noticed Jason’s tremendous natural aptitude for music, and he brought in a keyboard and began jamming with the future musicians. He taught them about song structure, and chord changes. Soon “Jason & The Boys,” were performing at all the neighborhood talent shows, contests and neighborhood dances. By the time Jason got to Junior High, the word was out that he was an instrumental master. All the young “homies,” in the neighborhood were coming to Jason and Gil to have their rap songs as professionally produced as their material was at that time. Jason and Gil had made quite a reputation for themselves around Los Angeles County High School for the Arts!
