Words are inadequate to describe the communication between a band and the audience. When a
band soaks up the energy of an audience, and the audience grooves on what they hear, the result is
magic. On their debut live album “Groovespeak”,The Jason Raso Trio is busy gettin’ to the makin’
of magic. The trio, absorbing a number of musical influences from jazz masters to funk trailblazers,
has emerged with a sophisticated, funky style.These three individuals Jason Raso, Rob Hannam and
Enio DiReto, have banded together, to further a common end, which is ear ecstasy in a perfect groove.
Jason Raso – bass and electric upright bass
Jason Raso continually unwraps little gifts to the
listener, as he explores a variety of phrasing and
lays down a groove so deep that you need a
miner’s lamp to find your way.
Enio Di Reto - drums
When the light shines on him, Enio DiReto
steps up and blazes the kit, then returns us to a
comfortable pulse, seamlessly.
Rob Hannam - keys
Rob Hannam demonstrates delicate nuances of
melody and harmony while displaying a rolling
rhythmic sense.You can’t help but feel there is
something wild pacing underneath his control.
