The best kept secret in music


Written by Bruce Bennet Appeared in Sept. 2007 issue of The Independent (So. Utah)

On the surface, "Mason's Jar of Jam" appears to be your typical improvised group of local musicians who got to-gether through various connections and decided to form a band for no specific reason other than a good time.

Drummer Shaw Owens met guitarist/vocalist Mason Cottam through the Southern Utah Songwriters Association, who in turn met bass player Chuck Triplett. While in the studio, sound engineer Steve Lemmon pulled his guitar off the shelf and Mason's Jar of Jam was a real band.

Combining elements of Nu Jazz, Country and Folk/Pop, their music may be difficult to define but their intent is clear.

Featuring Cottam's soothing vocals, their debut CD contains tasty flourishes of mandolin, violin and even brass such as on "Lately," a bluesy torch song that feels experimental but demonstrates the band's flexibility and determination to avoid musical stereotypes.

With lyrics that are by design positive if a bit ethereal, their overtly obvious band name disguises a band with hidden textures that rewards the careful listener. - Independent (So. Utah)
