Ever Present is a little different from the first CD. The music is more upbeat and some songs may even appear, we hope, in an upcoming film or T.V. show. They are that good!
Two of the songs on this CD have already been recoginized by the music industry in New Mexico. "The Kings March" recently received the award for "Best New Age/ Adult Contemporary Song". Also, "Christmas IS Home" was one of the five finalists for "Best New Song", all catagories.
Rome is overwhelmed by the already wonderful response's that this CD has already received. It is greatly appreciated that the fans of the first CD have already purchased their copies of Ever Present and love it. Music of this type in such a pure form is rare. His writing and arrangement ability is fantastic! Rome has an awsome ability to move his listners with passion and open the minds of the discriminating listener.
You will not be disapointed with your purchase of Ever Present. It is a joy to listen to over and over again.
Album REVIEW: "Keyboardist Rome Mazza has a knack for composition in the faded genre that has long been called New Age music..." "New Age composers can either take you deep inside a song or leave you hungry for more than dulling nodding. Mazza is in the first catagory of composers. And he writes and arranges tunes that seem to go beyond the New Age shtick. Indeed they are ripe for use as meditative moments of a movie soundtrack."
