Mason Razavi Organ Quartet featuring Anton Schwartz

MR Organ Quartet 7:13:19 poster.jpg

Star saxophonist Anton Schwartz joins Bay Area mainstays Mason Razavi (guitar), Brian Ho (organ), and Jason Lewis (drums) for a concert at Art Boutiki. This ad-hoc group came together in late 2018 to play a string of dates around the Bay Area and quickly found chemistry playing their favorite standards and reinterpreting previously recorded originals of their own. The group will be playing their favorite standards as well as originals that draw from straight ahead and hard-bop influences.
