Hello jazzreview music community! I am keyboard and electric guitar player Chris Rossi out of the Boston, Mass. area on the Net Dot Music label - an Internet based independent record label specializing in instrumental fusion: all-instrumental music that blends several styles and genres.

My music style blends elements of jazz, rock, blues, R&B, and funk into groove-based compositions featuring retro/vintage keyboards & atmospheric soundscapes over loop/sample-based rhythm section arrangements. If you enjoy jazz rock, jazz fusion, ambient jazz, some progressive rock or other related instrumental music fusion, you will probably connect with my music.

Gary Burton's debut release on Mack Avenue Records, Common Ground, is Burton's first studio album since 2005, and introduces his latest band, the New Gary Burton Quartet, featuring guitarist Julian Lage, bassist Scott Colley, and drummer Antonio Sanchez. The group performs during the closing night concert of the 2011 Berklee BeanTown Jazz Festival.

Burton, the Grammy-winning pioneer of the four-mallet vibraphone technique, has been well-known throughout his five-decade career for his quartets (beginning with his 1967 group featuring Larry Coryell, Roy Haynes, and Steve Swallow). "Whenever I start a new group, I often wonder how things will work, to see if the musicians will enjoy playing together and are ready to take the music to a higher level," says Burton. "With the new band, I'm thrilled. It's proving to be one of the standout bands of my career and has already quickly developed its own identity."

Isabelle Geffroy, aka Zaz, released her eponymous debut CD in May 2010 and by any standards it is excellent. If you ask Zaz about her musical influences she will explain that she prefers to think of them as meetings. She is expressive, powerful and has such vocal control that the execution of each song appears effortless. Not only will the album will dazzle you but also make you sit up and listen.

Guitar player Razl is back with a new album full of surprises! A psychedelic journey to a microscopic world that doesn´t really exist.

In this new album, Razl is accompanied by bass player Bryan Beller (Steve Vai, Mike Keneally Band, Metalocalypse) whose saturated music lines perplex the audience; and drummer Pepe Acebal, whose determination to rebuild rhythmical bases make his sound unusual and crowded. Besides , Razl has had two exceptional guests: guitar player Will Bernard (Stanton Moore Trio) and trumpeter Rubén Salvador.
