"On Live On Planet Bop you can find several funky live tracks, which Raso recorded live with his band. It is a pleasure to hear these songs. You can feel the good mood of the band and the audience in the live club. You can also find some long solo passages from the Spector fan Raso. The cd also contains songs recorded and produced in the studio which continue and develop in the line of The Bassman Cometh."

If it can be played on the bass, Jason Raso is your man: from jazz to blues and on down the line into funk and rock, he’s got a handle on it. Raso has paid his dues, mastering musical theory, various playing techniques, and the guts of any number of musical genres. Although it would be easy to focus on Raso’s technique, it’s the emotion and sheer energy of the music that will have you sit up and pay attention to his compositions. Each has a life and feel all its own with Raso utilizing slap, tapping, palm muting, and plucking to set the mood. No stranger to the live music scene, Raso has over 250 gigs under his belt. With his newly formed trio, he hopes to see that number rise. Raso’s past work includes The Bassman Cometh (2001), Live on Planet Bop (2002), and the recently released Detour (2005).
