Born in Los Angeles, California, Rastine attended Locke High School noted for its musical excellence. Locke alumni also include fine musicians such as Patrice Rushen, Gerald Albright, Ndugu Chancellor and recording artist, Tyrese. While at Locke, Rastine studied saxophone and performed with the school's jazz band, concert band and wind ensemble, as well as playing with some of the local big bands. While a senior at Locke, Rastine received the Most Outstanding Musician Award and won a competition enabling him to perform at the Monterey Jazz Festival backing jazz greats such as John Lewis, Woody Herman and Mundell Lowe. Rastine attended Southern University where he studied jazz, woodwinds, arranging and composition under the direction of legendary music Professor and clarinetist, Alvin Batiste. Rastine’s first touring experience was with the Four Tops, and he went on to tour with Kenny Babyface Edmonds, Marvin Gaye, the Gap Band, James Ingram, Diane Reeves, Sheena Easton, Patrice Rushen and Gladys Knight among others. In addition to touring and performing, Rastine has also performed studio recordings with many of these artists.  Though alto, tenor, soprano saxophone, flute and clarinet are considered to be Rastine's primary instruments,he is also noted for his skills as a wind controller specialist, producer, and is often hired to play saxophone, double on keyboards and wind  controller as second and third instruments.  Rastine is also a composer, arranger and producer who's work has been featured in films such as “Hoodlums” starring Lawrence Fishburn and Andy Garcia, “Life” starring Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence, “The Little Death” starring J.T. Walsh,

Capitol Records, RCA, BMG, Loud, and many independent companies. Rastine created and ran a successful jazz and creative music program at Ribet’ Academy, a private college preparatory school located in Los Angeles, California where he taught music including jazz, theory, composition, soloing and performance for five years.

Currently, Rastine continues to perform, write, record, tour, teach and produce for various
