LAWSON ROLLINS
Full Circle
(Infinita Records)

 

One of the most accomplished and creative World Fusion guitarists on the planet today, Lawson Rollins released his fourth solo album Full Circle in mid 2013. In the spirit of Lawson’s other excellent solo albums, the 12 track, 56 minute Full Circle CD features solid production from Dominic Camardella. While admittedly approaching the recording sessions with a “less is more” philosophy, on Full Circle Lawson keeps the sound full and fresh, enhancing his spirited guitar work with the backing of several gifted musicians who assist in filling in the colors behind Lawson’s often fiery and quite nimble guitar work. Skillfully injecting his tasteful Flamenco fusion-based nylon string classical guitar flavors into the diverse musical worlds of Afro-Cuban, rumba, bossa nova, samba, Middle Eastern, tango, reggae, rock, classical and jazz, on Full Circle Lawson arrives at something that borders on sublime, instrumental, pan-global guitar-centric jazz that is truly colorful and invigorating. Surely Lawson’s most well-rounded album yet, Full Circle is overflowing with a wide ranging sonic backdrop of sounds that makes you feel that one minute you're high in the Colorado Rockies then the next you’re in Rio for Carnival time. In addition to the overall winning direction of the entire Full Circle CD, with its memorable and majestic guitar-centric Americana flavored / Metheny-esque title track, the song “Full Circle” is also one of Lawson’s greatest compositions. Travel in style around Lawson Rollins' guitar universe and arrive back home safe and sound with Full Circle. www.LawsonRollins.com
