Graduated from the University of Wisconsin in 1994 Jason Weber is since a long time an integral part of the San Diego jazz scene. He started his solo career with 1st AVENUE in 1997, followed by Leap of Faith (1999), Something Blue (2002), Can U Feel Me Now? (2005) and this year Five.
On his new album Jason is supported by drummers Steve Ferrone and Duncan Moore, keyboardists Michael Leroy & Tad Sisler, bassists Nathan Brown & Chris Kringel, & guitarist Mike DeRose. Jason wrote most of the compositions in part with producer Marcel East. Guitarist/songwriter/producer Marcel East is Nathan East younger brother, working with Nathan on numerous projects including Fourplay, Al Jarreau, David Benoit and more.
The album starts with the apodictic U Know U Like It. Indeed this compelling tune offers an addictive melody which let’s you prick up your ears. Jason and Marcel East composed For The Children for those who will follow us and will hopefully have a better childhood than Michael Jackson.
