Jason Yeager(Profile/Biography)

United States
English
New York-based pianist/composer Jason Yeager’s music is deeply expressive and multi-faceted, having included everything from Vietnamese Buddhist chant-inspired melodies to drum’n’bass rhythms to Argentine folk styles and beyond. His evolving musical personality reflects his love of jazz and improvisation, interests in a variety of musical styles and traditions, and diverse experiences playing and studying music in Latin America and Southern Africa. Originally from Framingham, MA (outside Boston), Jason has been playing the piano for over 16 years and has led various groups, including his current project, the Jason Yeager Trio. With this group he plans to release his debut CD on the Inner Circle Music label in early 2011. In addition to participating in recording projects by his peers, Jason also collaborated and recorded with mentor and pianist/composer Ran Blake on the iconic musician’s tribute to the late jazz composer/theorist George Russell, soon to be released on the HatHut label.

Jason has performed throughout the Northeast, in jazz clubs, concert halls and other venues in Boston and New York City. Outside the United States, Jason has performed in several venues in South Africa and Argentina. While at the New England Conservatory of Music (NEC) in Boston, Jason studied with some of the world’s most dynamic and creative jazz musicians and improvisers, including Danilo Pérez, Fred Hersch, Jerry Bergonzi, Frank Carlberg, John McNeil, and Ran Blake. Jason’s formative training in both classical music and jazz included private and class study with many other wonderful teachers, including Dan Loschen, Kyle Aho, and Milton Academy’s jazz director Bob Sinicrope.

Jason’s interests are diverse, and extend beyond music. An international relations major at Tufts University, Jason graduated from the 5-year Tufts/NEC Double Degree Program with a B.A. (summa cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa) from Tufts and a B.M. (with honors) from NEC. Like his mentor and teacher, the renowned pianist Danilo Pérez, Jason believes that music can be a force for good, with the healing capacity to bring people together and contribute positively to our world. Jason hopes to do his part by someday fusing his interests in music and social justice.
