Now Playing: The Tide's In
Topic: Brian Rolland
Composer/Guitarist Brian Rolland returns with a brand new album on the heels of the success of 'Dreams of Brazil' (also available) in 2006. 'The Tide's In' expands on his acclaimed WorldJazz feel with more vocals, richer drums and percussion, and the same subtle, vibrant guitar virtuosity that is renowned worldwide. Brian Rolland is a native son of Cambridge MA, where he drank in a wide range of music in his youth. Blues and folk greats like Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf and Tom Rush who he heard very early on at the Club 47 in the '60s, the constant stream of New York Jazz greats like Miles Davis, Weather Report and Keith Jarrett through the Jazz Workshop, Greater Boston's exceptional classical music, and a rock scene that created The J. Geils Band and Aerosmith were his creative influences, along with Jobim, Milton Nascimento, and a host of others.
