Zeke Having personally known the talent of Mr.E in previous incarnations, I was not surprised at how tremendously intense and beautiful this project turned out to be, and i am overjoyed that it has finally come to my ears, and, through them, to my very soul! Favorite track: Awakening.

Dustin Wall So I just finished listening to this and as the title suggests, it's pure fire. I don't often review, but I logged in just to give this a giant thumbs up. This album seriously just punched me in the neck and handed me the keys. Fantastic interplay between Trey, Selvaganesh, Mr. E. and other players and Resolve/Improv/Caravan especially is proof of a worthy concept. Wow, jaw on the floor! Do not delay - Check this out! Favorite track: Awakening.

  • DVD + Digital Album

    Companion DVD to the live CD by Deep Energy Orchestra. This super-group showcases prog-phenom Trey Gunn (King Crimson) and Indian percussion master Selvaganesh (John McLaughlin, Masters of Percussion) teaming up with composer Jason Everett (Mister E), 7-string violinist Radhiker Iyer and a Seattle-based classical string ensemble.

    Performing the eclectic compositions of world-jazz bassist Jason Everett, this group of Indian, Prog Rock, and Classical musicians take the listener on a journey of exotic soundscapes. Jason’s ability to weave Indian-style melodies together with complex, funky, odd-meter grooves is deceptively natural.

    This DVD contains all the performances recorded live over a two-day recording session at the Jack Straw Center in Seattle, WA as part of an Artist Residency award.

    Also included is the live, in-concert video footage of DEO's version of "Lotus Flower" by John McLaughlin. Recorded on Vashon Island, Washington.

SPECIAL NOTE: This download includes video of two full songs being recorded -- "The Return" and "Mysterious World".

"Playing With Fire" is the first live recording by Deep Energy Orchestra. This super-group showcases prog-phenom Trey Gunn (King Crimson) and Indian percussion master Selvaganesh (Shakti, John McLaughlin, Jonas Helborg) teaming up with composer Jason Everett (Mister E) and a Seattle-based classical string ensemble.

Performing the eclectic compositions of world-jazz bassist Jason Everett, this group of Indian, Prog Rock, and Classical musicians take the listener on a journey of exotic soundscapes. Jason’s ability to weave Indian-style melodies together with complex, funky, odd-meter grooves is deceptively natural.

More-strings-than-usual might be a theme for this group as lead violinist Radhika Iyer, from San Francisco played her seven-string electric violin and Everett himself is known for his unique seven-string fretless bass. Other local musicians who rounded out the sound included tabla player Anil Prasad, and classical musicians, Rachel Nesvig on violin, Aleida Gehrels on viola, and Phil Hirschi on cello.

These performances were recorded live over a two-day recording session at the Jack Straw Cultural Center in Seattle, WA as part of an Artist Residency award. Everything was also captured on video with multiple cameras so that the unusual instruments (tabla, kanjira, seven-string electric violin, Warr Guitar, and Selvaganesh’s custom drum kit) can be seen as well as heard.

“Jason Everett's intonation on his signature 7-string fretless bass is exemplary, and he is a well-spring of melodies and musical ideas. Keep your eyes and ears out for Jason Everett aka Mister E!”
- Stu Hamm

“It is my pleasure to be part of Deep Energy Orchestra, everyone was flying, especially Trey! I had a great time playing the music and was impressed with Jason’s pieces, especially those in odd-meters. This is one of my favorite groups!”
- Selvaganesh
  
“Jason’s impressive bass work will dazzle, but his playing transcends the instrument to become a pure source of expression. His compositions are equally full of wonder and atmosphere for a sonic journey. A top-notch musician!”
- Kevin Johnson No Treble Bass Magazine

"Great musicianship and a beautiful mix of tone colors."  
- Matthew Montfort Founder of World Fusion Group Ancient Future

"Very interesting piece of work by Jason Everett! Well Done!"
- Bass Frontiers Magazine

“There are only a few bass players in the world who have the unique sound and touch on fretless bass like Jason Everett.” 
- Aydin Can Kutluay, (aka Katipzade)
