THE EVENT

Guitarist/composer Mason Razavi celebrates the release of his fourth album, Quartet Plus, Volume 2 at Art Bouitki in San Jose, CA. Released by Origin Records (OA2 22142), this work is next in a series showcasing original music performed by Razavi's quartet and nonet. The album builds on the first Quartet Plus outing, which was warmly received by critics and spent 5 weeks on the American Top 40 Jazz chart CMJ (peaking at #17) and 7 weeks on the RMR Top 50 Jazz Chart (peaking at #5).

THE MUSIC

"From delicately scored ballads to a raucous take on "Caravan," Bay-Area guitarist Mason Razavi's second volume of his "Quartet Plus" series inhabits the great traditional jazz forms while enhancing them with modern textures and rhythms, creating a work that should leave jazz aficionados of various stripes nodding in approval. Working with pianist Bennett Roth-Newell, bassist Dan Robbins and drummer Cody Rhodes, the "Plus" is a five-piece horn section featured on several dynamic and intricately arranged compositions." - All About Jazz
