Electric Beethoven Releases ‘New Path’ Single Featuring Karl Denson
Hear Reed Mathis' latest Beethoven reimagining through the lens of Charlie Parker.
With “New Path,” Mathis enlisted renowned saxophonist Karl Denson (Rolling Stones, Greyboy Allstars, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe), who has been a longtime friend and mentor since sitting in with Reed’s first band Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey. “New Path” sees Mathis and Denson reimagining the second movement of Beethoven’s Piano Sonata #8 through the lens of bebop master Charlie Parker and his Charlie Parker With Strings album. Mathis laid down the initial electric guitar with The String Cheese Incident’s Jason Hann providing drums while keyboardist Todd Stoops added synth basslines.
