The United "Jasons" - Jazz Virtuosos Jason Anick, Jason Yeager, and Jason Palmer Team up for this special concert!
Rejecting the confining roles of strict categorization, The Jason Anick/Jason Yeager Quartet eagerly embrace what Anick and Yeager have defined as jazz without borders. Their debut album, United, was selected as one of the top jazz albums in 2017 by Downbeat Magazine.
For Anick and Yeagerfriends since their teenage years, frequent collaborators, and now fellow Berklee instructors The Anick/Yeager Quartet is both an artistic culmination of a long personal association and a statement of a shared musical aesthetic. Rounding out the quartet are jazz heavyweights Greg Loughman on bass and Mike Connors on Drums. Another frequent collaborator and equally gifted soloist and composer, Jason Palmer, will be joining the quartet on trumpet. The group will be performing music from their debut album, United, as well as brand new music form their forthcoming album, Sanctuary.
