Times change. People want to hear AND SEE the music they enjoy. More than ever, they are interested in the creative process of the artists they support. It is this cultural shift that has motivated "The Satellite Sessions". We asked: what would happen if we opened the curtains to the recording studio? What if we weren't so precious about the result? What if we were more interested in capturing an honest performance rather than a perfect one? What if we used technology as a tool to further collaboration, connection and creativity? In the coming weeks, we will explore these questions using sound and image, collaborating as a duo and with guest artists both near and far. Where will we point the satellite next? Stay tuned!
Episode #1 - "The Colbert Bump" - Jason Raso - bass and Adam Bowman - drums. Engineered by Brad Dugas at Revelation Sound.
In my opinion Fodera is the gold standard in electric bass and I couldn't be more excited and humbled to join the family! Their artist roster is second to none - Anthony Jackson, Victor Wooten, Richard Bona, Tony Grey Bass, Janek Gwizdala, James Genus, and Matt Garrison among others have all caused me to lose sleep over the years!
To be honest, I never thought that this could happen. A big thank you to Dave Scovell at Ultimate Basses for believing in me and getting the ball rolling. Thank you to Jason DeSalvo, Phil Zuckerman and everyone at Fodera for welcoming me! I will do my best to play up to the Fodera standard!
Stay tuned for clinic dates in the new year! Hopefully I'll be heading to your area!
Jason has just signed an artist endorsement agreement with Gallien-Krueger Bass Amplifiers. "Thank you to Forest Gallien at GK and Steve Das at Yorkville for making this happen." Jason is now using the MB Fusion 500 Head.
