...an introspective experience of deeper meaning...a mature rendering of masterful playing and ideas. Razavi is definitely one to watch.
JAZZ TIMES

Inspired by the great solo guitar tradition epitomized by the towering performances of Joe Pass, Lenny Breau, and the like, Bay Area guitarist Mason Razavi offers his own look at a wide-ranging collection of tunes from the Great American Songbook. With several compositions from famed Sinatra collaborator Jimmy Van Heusen alongside familiar favorites from Henry Mancini, Johnny Green, and others, Razavi interprets these songs with his archtop and acoustic guitars, alternating between pick playing and intricate fingerstyle arrangements to deliver a varied set bound to delight lovers of solo guitar.
