Mason Razavi & Bennett Roth-Newell – After YouSeptember 8, 2015 / No Comments / Tags: Bennett Roth-Newell, Mason Razavi, thejazzpage.com
Guitarist Mason Razavi and pianist Bennett Roth-Newell have worked together in various musical capacities since meeting during their graduate studies at San Jose State University. After You marks their collaborative recording debut and it is a delightful one. Each player’s sound compliments the other musician so incredibly. The musical conversation between the two make this production a really enjoyable listen. Additionally, the excellent original compositions and wonderfully sculpted covers by Lennon and McCartney, Clifford Brown and Joe Zawinul contribute to the quality of this collection. This is a fantastic duo project.
