A NoHo Arts music review of  Mr Grossman’s “Novella” mini album.

Mr Grossman’s latest self-described ‘mini album’ “Novella” is a selection of deeply R&B, soulful,  pop tracks.  

With a lovely variety of vocal styles from Mark Grossman as well as vocalist Chana Matthews, these beautifully written songs take us from politics to love, with a few very human heartaches and stumbles along the way. 

This does feel like a mini album. Each song with its very own aesthetic and atmosphere. Something Sade-like, then John Ledgendy, but all very cohesive and gorgeously connected.

“Novella” deserves several listens, it grows and grows on you. Sometimes brilliantly simple music needs to sit in your mind a little, to ruminate and marinade. “Novella” is like that. 

Stripped back excellent songs that need nothing more than some space in your mind and a little time to really become unforgettable. 

Each track on this little but poignant album has impact and resonance in an ingeniously gentle way. 

Mark Grossman has something to say and he says it with poetry and a humble authentic style all his own. 

I absolutely love it!!

Favorite track, “Escape” – gorgeous!!!
