Saturday, June 2 – Jason Raso Quintet with Richard Underhill

Jason Raso has a funk heart and a jazz head.

They are hard wired together by the 4 strings of his bass guitar, and an innate ability to craft music that will tear you from your seat, take you on a journey, and bring you back, spent, but unharmed.

For over 20 years, Raso has pursued the groove to such excellence that Exclaim Magazine declares, “Jason Raso’s bass is a full-on orchestra of ground vibrating pleasure.”

Through his first 5 albums and countless live performances, from intimate settings to festival stages, Jason and his band have entertained and connected with listeners. You could focus on his finely honed technique, but it’s the energy and emotion of the tunes that carries the night.

Jason’s sixth album, The Red Arrow, is a debut with Summit Records that explore his jazz sensibilities with creative originals like Corner Pocket. He doubles on electric guitar, and the acoustic double bass, bringing endless groove to the jazz blend.
