Reunited and it feels so good!

Mason Razavi is a jazz guitarist, composer/arranger, educator, and recording artist in the San Francisco Bay Area. His albums have garnered praise from critics and have received airplay internationally. Razavi has been described as a "thoughtful player and composer that offers the listener an introspective experience of deeper meaning" by Jazz Times.

Razavi's albums include a catalog of ambitious compositions for classical guitar as well as jazz compositions for his quartet and nonet. He has also written music for various classical/orchestral settings and has worked as a freelance arranger and producer.

Razavi is the newest director of the Daddios big band, a group with a decades-long history in the Bay Area that was started by the late trumpeter and teacher Dr. Herb Patnoe at De Anza College.

Impassioned, soulful singer/songwriter Black Betty has shared the stage with such musical greats as Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks and Jack Pearson of Allman Brothers fame, Susan Tedeschi of the Tedeschi Trucks band and Jimmy Vivino from Late Night with Conan OBrien. She was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame for her work with legendary harmonica player Charlie Sayles just a few years after graduating from Berklee College of Music.

Part vamp and part glamour girl, she is all-commanding in her on-stage deliveries and becomes pure sorceress spellbinding audiences with her searing hot vocals. To quote from her sizzlingly seductive rendition of Fever what a lovely way to burn.
