Lawson Rollins – Airwaves: The Greatest Hits

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), Elevation (2011) and his fourth album Full Circle (2013). With Airwaves: The Greatest Hits (2018) he gives lovers of Latin Jazz the opportunity to discover his music.

Airwaves: The Greatest Hits – featuring all of Lawson Rollins’ radio chart hits taken from his seven solo albums, including the Billboard Top 30 contemporary jazz radio charting songs Island Time, Moonlight Samba, Infinita, Flight, and Daybreak. Two brand new bonus tracks were recorded exclusively for this album: the contemporary jazz track World of Wonder (featuring the Billboard #1 group 3rd Force) and the classically-inspired, world-music composition Prado (featuring 2-time Grammy Award winning violinist Mads Tolling). Other guests include iconic Brazilian singer Flora Purim. 11 of the 18 tracks are never-before-released radio edit versions that feature different performances and guests artists not heard on the album versions, like In Motion (radio edit) which features an exclusive appearance by Billboard #1 soprano saxophonist Praful, not heard on the original album version.

You can pre-order the album on Amazon.com.
