Lawson Rollins

Nylon string guitarist Lawson Rollins' latest album 'Elevation' features an eclectic fusion of musical styles performed by a global cast of musicians recorded in Nepal, Iran, and the U.S. The track 'Francisco's Dance' pays tribute to Lawson's roots as a classical guitarist, but with a unique, modern twist. The track is a re-imaging of the classical guitar standard 'Capricho Arabe', written by Francisco Tarrega in 1892 and performed by such guitar greats as Andres Segovia and Julian Bream. With "Francisco's Dance", Lawson injects his own improvisational flair into the piece and morphs it into a Cuban-flavored cha cha, underpinned by a bolero bongo beat and accented by trumpet, piano, and subtle slide guitar.
