Pasqua’s list of artistic accomplishments speaks for itself, as Pasqua’s illustrious career includes playing piano for Bob Dylan, Santana and The New Tony Williams Lifetime. Other album and touring credits include Ray Charles, Joe Cocker, John Fogerty, Aretha Franklin, Elton John, Rod Stewart and Phil Spector.
Additionally, Pasqua is an accomplished composer. His two CD releases, “Milagro” and “Dedications” on the Postcards Label hit the top of the jazz charts.
Recently, Pasqua has reunited with guitarist Allan Holdsworth from The New Tony Williams Lifetime and toured in support of their upcoming DVD release, entitled “Live At Yoshi’s.” When recently touring in Europe, Pasqua discovered the JBL EON G2’s. “I was trying out a lot of different speakers for my keyboard monitors last summer when I was touring in Europe, and I had a good experience with a couple of JBL wedges,” Pasqua said. “However, they were a bit heavier than I wanted so I asked JBL if they had a more suitable product and [JBL Director of Marketing for Portable PA] Simon Jones recommended the EON G2’s.”
When choosing a new stage monitor, Pasqua has a few strict priorities: clear and accurate sound, ease of use, and versatility. According to Pasqua, the EON system met and exceeded these specifications. “The light weight of the EON loudspeakers is perfect, they’re extremely portable, and they can be angled in different ways on the floor,” Pasqua added. “And the best news is they sound great. They handle everything I dish out, there is no distortion or saturation points, and they deliver crystal-clear sound.”
Pasqua’s experience with the JBL EON loudspeakers has been so positive, he intends to use them exclusively for his future tours. “I have a tour in Asia coming up in March 2007, and a European tour in May,” he said. “I have already changed my backline specifications to include the EON G2’s.”
