When guitarist Lawson Rollins arrived on the World Music scene, he astonished listeners with his electrifying guitar style and expansive musical vision. His genre-defying sound combined the passionate rhythms of salsa and samba, the free-flowing improvisations of Latin jazz, the deep bass tones of the blues, the gentle lilt of the Bossa Nova, the fiery attack of flamenco, and the soaring melodic flight of classical music. Rollins' debut album, INFINITA, lived up to its name with a far-reaching series of groundbreaking soundscapes. All About Jazz called the album "a rewarding gem...easily one of the year's best." Read the story of the album here. The guitarist was praised for his compositional skill and soulful virtuosity. Guitar Player Magazine wrote, "Rollins seduces in so many ways that it's almost unfair. His classical tone is gorgeous, his technique is impeccable, his subtle genre blending is compelling." Espirito, Rollins' second solo effort (scheduled for release January 19, 2010), is a suite that extends and expands the vision of INFINITA with thirteen compositions that delve deeply into the roots of World Music.-LawsonRollins-TheFireCadenza Final
