Bassist/composer Jason Raso has explored the groove where funk and jazz meet for more than two decades.
He continues in that vein on Man of 40 Faces, the Canadian’s latest album of 11 new compositions. Bassist Alain Caron joins him to duet, and trombonist Wycliffe Gordon and vibraphone player Francesco Pinetti also appear on the album.
The groove is ever-present, as you can hear in this live preview of some of the album’s music:
