Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas to all of you visiting the site. Everyone has lived a year (2020) of confusion, fear, turmoil, wonder and more. A pandemic in our life time was certainly unexpected. I won't take the space, time or any other dimension to express what a shock this has been to artists everywhere. Literally, I have been unemployed since February. Because I am a professional music artist, I am not a qualified recipient of federal or state assistance.
Enough of that, I am fine and trying to stay positive! Working on some new music with several people and my own stuff of course.
Happy Holidays to all of you! There is light at the end of the tunnel. Don't worry.
I wrote the opening track on the new Pinnacle Point album on Escape Music. You can order it at http://www.jeromemazza.com. I played keys on several tracks too. You'll note guest appearances from Jim Morris and Mark Prator from Aldenfield.
Aldenfield is a prog rock band that I put together involving three of my best musical friends and three of the finest players in Tampa, FL. (Jim Morris, Mark Prator and Ruben Drake). This is a project I am particularly proud of. Samples available on the Aldenfield page.
On the ZON front......Rock Candy, a respected label in the UK, has re-released Zon's first album, "Astral Projector". With new mastering and 4 bonus tracks!!! One of which has never been released. You can hear a snippet of it on the bottom of my website here. "The Battle". Here is the link for purchasing: https://www.rockcandyrecords.com/Zon
Another CD I have available is The Quietest Moments. This is a collection of piano based pieces some of which have kind of a world music flavor. It's good music for relaxing, meditating or just chillin' round the house.
Merry Christmas to all of you,
back to the piano. Well maybe not right away.............
