About Jason Ricci and New Blood
Jason Ricci and New Blood mix blues, rock, funk, eastern, and jazz into a seamless cohesion both eclectic and idiosyncratic while always avoiding cliche’s and histrionics. Television, radio, and literary critics compare them to acts as diverse as The Rolling Stones, John Coltrane, and Lou Reed. Modern day parallels also include acts ranging from Government Mule to Prince and the Revolution. New Blood always delivers a level of musical virtuosity, while effortlessly keeping the fun, angst and energy of a Punk Rock band, with the skill, refinement and reflection typical of a Jazz ensemble.
