Razz: Clazz (CD, 74:19); RMD, 9901, 1999 E-mail: email@example.com Cyberhome: N/A 10 words or less: Non-threatening, radio-friendly Fusion. Elaboration: From southern California, Razz is a band focused on mass appeal. I rarely ever listen to broadcast radio but when I move into a new area, I program my car radio to the stations that could potentially play music of interest to me. When I lived in the Los Angeles area, one of my presets was set to a station called The Wave. Razz's music would fit perfectly on this station. The album opens with a swingin', upbeat number with toe-tapping potential. Razz incorporates a horn section on some of their tunes and they certainly liven up this one. Track two is a little smoother but still uptempo with some nice laid back Keyboard and Guitar soloing. Track three is another bubbly tune. All of Razz's music has a very 80s Fusion sound. Owning as I do, all of the greatest, classic Fusion from the 70s, I remember back in the 80s, how different Fusion had become compared to the 70s. Razz continuously reminds me of Spyro Gyra and the Yellowjackets. The liveliest track on the album is "Medium Rare" and while I enjoyed this tune the most, I wouldn't describe it as angular or bombastic. Razz plays it very safe and if that's your kind of Fusion, then go to Amazon.com and get you a copy of this album. ~ L. Perez
