Album Review
Tom McCarter
Reviewed 2019-02-20 

Review: Guitarist Rotella has a long & storied career & has played in collaboration with a wide range of top jazz musicians. On this, his 11th disc, Rotella continues to surprise and lead his audiences into often-uncharted territory -- but always with that sense of adventure and passion that have been a cornerstone of his musical life.
