Jason Gordon So edition records sent me a coupon for 20% off this album. I pretty much had to nab it and I'm glad I did. It tops the For Better Times album by Andy Elmer. Black Bird and Tokyo Dreams are my favourite tracks. Favorite track: Blackbird.

john greenwood Jason is a wonderful talent with a style and a grace to his playing that is genuine and unique. There is a lot of great talent out there. Jason is a master of masters, and this new album is coming at a time when he is at the height of his musical skill and creativity. This is a rare musician, with a knowledge and an understanding that makes his music such a rare and special gift. I'm completely blown away after a few times through. Every single track is special. Salute!

ABOUT Held:

British pianist Jason Rebello is regarded as one of the most talented, inventive and intuitive pianists to emerge in the UK since he burst onto the scene in the early 90’s with a string of critically acclaimed albums for the BMG label.

Marked with an emotional depth unusual in one so young, these albums elevated Jason to the peak of jazz celebrity at a time when the music was undergoing an unheralded period of popularity.

It came as no surprise that Jason caught the attention of Weather Report’s Wayne Shorter (Herbie Hancock, also from Miles Davis’ famous 1960s quintet was a personal hero) and he toured internationally with his band before replacing another hero, Kenny Kirkland, in Sting’s band.

Jason had primarily worked with electronic keyboards in his own groups (as well as with Sting and Jeff Beck); but now he has decided it’s time to say something on the instrument he loves. In early 2016 Jason will release his debut solo piano album, featuring mostly original compositions inspired by the people and places that have been important in his career.

In this solo format the intensely lyrical quality always evident in Jason’s music comes to the fore and, allied to his formidable technique and maturity as an artist and musician, ensures that on Held, he is creating some of the most compelling and beautiful music of his career.

As Jason explains: ‘throughout my career I’ve had the opportunity to play in wide-ranging and diverse scenarios, but never had an opportunity to immerse myself fully in the piano. I’ve reached a point now where I feel there is something to say with just a piano and I’m relishing this opportunity to consolidate all my musical experiences on this record’.
