Formación y trayectoria

Jason Smay "Teen Beat" - Rochester, New York, EEUU (1978) Es el actual baterista de los grupos: Los StraitJackets, The Hi-Risers y Elvis 56'. Empezó a tocar la batería con aproximadamente 3 años de edad. ”Mi padre tocaba la batería como hobby y teníamos la batería en casa”

Jason ha aprendido mucho escuchando discos y viendo a otros bateristas en directo, pero también recibió clases de 3 bateristas de Rochester muy distintos entre ellos: Mark Desalvo, Mike Phoulfe y Mike Melito. Mark Desalvo es un gran baterista de rock que me enseñó a tocar canciones completas, en vez de tocar sólo partes. Fue además un maestro muy alentador... consiguió que desease practicar sin tener que decírmelo. Mike Phoulfe me enseñó a tocar con Shuffle y R/B junto con algunas técnicas de Latin. Mike Melito es probablemente uno de los mejores bateristas tocando Be-Bop! Mike me enseñó a desarrollar mi técnica de mano y me enseñó ritmos básicos de Jazz.”

Los bateristas que más le han influido son: ”Buddy Rich era y sigue siendo mi mayor influencia... Pero también soy fan de: Ringo, Earl Palmer, Gene Krupa, Art Blakey, Philly Jo, Davey Tough, Dino Danelli, Mitch Mitchell, Hal Blaine… En cuanto a grupos: The Beatles, Young Rascals, Little Richard, Anita O'Day..."

Ha grabado con: The Hi-Risers, Los Straitjackets, Kasier George, Eddie Angel, Ian and The Aztecs y The Lustre Kings; además ha colaborado, tocando la betería en directo, con: Wanda Jackson, John Tichy of Commander Cody, Deke Dickerson, Marti Brom y Rocky Velvet.

My second teacher was Mike Phoulfe and he taught me how to play shuffles and R/B drumming along with some Latin techniques.
