In October 2015, Rosen and Karen Mason have created a show of their own, and it features, naturally,
music of Brian Lasser (Class of 1969) and Rosen. It's as if three former Chicagoans were coming back
home together, though only two were here in the flesh for this week's world premiere engagement at
Davenport's Piano Bar in Chicago. Lasser died tragically in 1992 of AIDS, at age 40, and Mason has
nurtured his memory ever since, featuring some of his music in virtually every solo show she has
performed. Rosen, meanwhile, organized and hosted Lasser's memorial, the three musicians linked for
all time by personal history and, of course, music.
