Blue Note, 2000, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Fusion
O’s Notes: Jason’s (p) trio includes Tarus Mateen (b) and Nasheet Waits (d). They are young, adventurous and determined to extend the lessons learned from their jazz forbears into new territory. They mix originals with a few interpretations form Ellington and Byard. The approach is relaxed and unconventional but continuously congruent.
