Very pleased with this nomination. This is the third one I received from this album and have won 2 awards for this recording. I am looking forward to the trip to LA to meet my friends and colleagues during the week. Have guitar will travel. Thank you for listening !!!!!
What the critics are writing about Recollections: Volume 1:
Recollections: Volume 1 is a masterful mélange of diverse musical flavors. I loved the intertwining roots of Robert’s guitar styles, which incorporated jazz, rock, fusion, ambient electronic and world music. And I was as impressed with Robert’s flair for composition and arranging, as I was with his impeccable guitar playing. One of the many things I like about Robert’s music is the way he adds dashes of world music influences into his jazzy compositions – just enough to provide a bit of exotic flavor without it trying to be an authentic indigenous sound.
