Rezak Coming with Album Release to Cohoes Music Hall March 18
COHOES – Cohoes Music Hall is hosting guitarist Marcus Rezak as he releases his new album on Saturday, March 18th. Rezak is celebrating the release of his new blues album “Guitar Head” and single “Sweet Mary Jane” with a short tour of New England, landing at the Hall on Saturday.
Rezak will bring along with him famed musicians Ray Pazcowski (Trey Anastasio Band), Felix Pastorius, Adrian Tramontano (Twiddle & Kung Fu), and Chris DeAngelis (Kung Fu & The Machine).
The new album is produced by Grammy-winning Paul Nelson, who brings enthusiasm to the project.
“Working with GRAMMY-winning producer Paul Nelson has been an absolute pleasure and has brought out the best in my guitar, playing and songwriting for this record,” Rezak says, “Additionally, having a world-class rhythm, section helps make things go smoothly as they did for the making of this album. Adrian Tramontano, Chris DeAngelis, Ray Paczkowski, and Eric Lawrence make for a dream team that can only be heard on this recording.”
Nelson shares Rezak’s fervor for the forthcoming record. “Marcus is a force to be reckoned with—as both a guitarist, songwriter, and vocalist. It was a real pleasure to produce his latest album, which I feel showcases his diversity and amazing talent,” Nelson said.
Rezak will be performing highlights of the new album as well as the new release “Sweet Mary Jane.” Inspired by late ‘60s freedom rock, the anthemic “Sweet Like Mary Jane” does not leave room for interpretation with its progressive blues homage to women working in the cannabis industry. The song celebrates free spirits who enjoy fine herbs and rock ‘n’ roll, drawing influence from Jimi Hendrix’s blues-rock era and a modern vocal and guitar solo style inspired by Warren Haynes.
