A veteran of numerous straight-ahead jazz, R&B, and pop sessions, drummer/composer Harvey Mason revisits his own fusion past on "Chameleon". The Fourplay co-founder gathered both his peers and next-generation players for this revisitation of electric jazz classics from the '70s. A blend of R&B, urban and cutting-edge Jazz, "Chameleon" takes its inspiration from the title track, which drummer Harvery Mason co-wrote with Herbie Hancock in 1973. Mason himself was eventually nicknamed the “Chameleon” for his ability to perform so many styles of music. This album updates classic tracks that Mason either wrote or played on, such as Hancock’s Chameleon, Grover Washington’s Black Frost, Donald Byrd’s Places And Spaces and Mason’s own Either Way.
