Lawson Rollins – Full Circle

As acoustic guitarist Lawson Rollins has a special affinity for Latin jazz. He has already acted this passion on his solo albums Infinita (2008), Espirito (2010) and Elevation (2011). That with so much success that now follows his fourth album Full Circle (2013).

On his new album Lawson is accompanied by Dominic Carmadella (keyboards, piano), Dave Bryants (drums, percussion), Randy Tico (bass), Richard Hardy (clarinet, sax and flute), Charlie Bisharatz (violin) and Cameron Stone (cello). Lawson has written all compositions, which corresponds to his basic attitude.

Lawson comments: “Full Circle is somewhat of a return to my roots in a sense, with the focus shifting to a sound that is more centered and grounded in the instrument I know best – the nylon string Spanish guitar. I was determined and indeed excited to create a cohesive, guitar-focused album. Full Circle is perhaps the most accurate, pointed expression of my guitar style and approach to melody and songcraft to date.”
