Jazz guitarist has partnered with sax player Elan Trotman for the fueled and energetic "Expresso Your Selfie." The first rapid and wailing notes from Elan's lone sax in the beginning lead into a festive and trippy melody that has a runaway bassline. Hailing from the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia, Jas started playing guitar, piano and drum kit rudimentary as a toddler, with professional performances at age 11, to include nightclubs at 17.
He studied jazz harmony, technique and theory with Howard Roberts of Musicians Institute, Comp & Theory at OU, and Harmony and Arranging with the Berklee College of Music, studying with Clark Terry, Pat Metheny, Mick Goodrick, and others.
He plays, guitar, keyboards, bass, drums, trumpet, baritone horn and Chapman stick, writes, composes and records currently in San Diego, California.
