THE EVENT

Guitarist/composer Mason Razavi celebrates the release of his fourth album, Quartet Plus, Volume 2 at Art Bouitki in San Jose, CA.

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).

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
