CD Review: Lawson Rollins' 'Full Circle'

Lawson Rollins
Full Circle
Infinita Records

American guitarist extraordinaire, Lawson Rollins, brings together a dozen songs that mix world fusion with flamenco, new age guitar stylings, and Spanish-tinged melodies. Many of the instrumental songs are akin to the guitar stylings and arrangements of Jesse Cook. Lawson plays classical, flamenco, and electric guitars, along with keyboards and drum programming. Lawson is joined by Dominic Camardella on keyboards and piano, Dave Bryant on drums and percussion, Randy Tico on acoustic and electric bass, Richard Hardy on clarinet, soprano sax and flute, Charlie Bisharat on violin, and Cameron Stone on cello. The scintillating melodies are timeless and free-flowing. Anyone with an interest in acoustic guitars and instrumental music will find happiness in Lawson's latest release. ~ Matthew Forss
