Roland Gresham – Pillow Talk

Pillow TalkJazz Guitarist Roland Gresham has been playing guitar since the age of six. He has performed at venues throughout the United States and abroad for the past thirty years. His earliest influence in jazz guitar was Wes Montgomery. In the late 1970’s, Roland heard the music of George Benson, and immediately became a fan of Mr. Benson’s style. Even though Roland has had no formal training, his music sounds like one who has studied at the great schools of music. Many who have heard him play have compared his playing to that of George Benson, Norman Brown, Earl Klugh, and Peter White.

Listening to the CD Pillow Talk will put you in several moods: relaxation, dancing, romance, etc. This is the first in a series of smooth jazz/romance cds to come. Five of the songs are original compositions which are: Take Your Time; Are You Ready; In The Mood; Midnight Seduction; and So Many Ways (To Say I Love You). Roland also included five cover songs that are all-time favorites. Roland has performed these songs and others for jazz festivals, banquets, receptions, and private parties from coast to coast.
