Amanda Ruzza has teamed up with drummer Mauricio Zottarelli for a cool new project aptly called Ruzza/Zottarelli. The duo is releasing Glasses, No Glasses in September. The album also features keyboardist Leo Genovese, who has worked with Esperanza Spalding.
All of the tracks were improvised on the spot. “Everything was live, with no overdubs. Only pure rock ‘n roll,” Ruzza shared.
Here’s a video for the bonus track, “No Glasses, Part 2.” Ruzza lays down some gnarly bass while the trio interacts to play around with the groove and texture.
