    Rowland’s quartet is a new dynamic group of highly respected soloists merging together to create something transcendental, colourful, expansive, otherworldly and deep. Music that is both driven and inventive with the occasional subterraneous excursion. Evocative, worldly explorations of free improvisation, jazz and groove sounds with added inspirations from the Caribbean and India. Ethereal themes converge with hypnotic rhythms, celestial textures, raw shifting ostinatos, psychedelic dub waves, colliding counterpoints and layers of sostenuto. A rich blend of elements from this vibrant quartet that promises music-making that challenges as well as soothes the listener.Music that is both driven and inventive with the occasional subterraneous excursion.

    I really like your work... reminiscent of the Jean-Luc Ponty and Stanley Clarke vibe. The flute is a nice touch. Keep the Faith. jC.

    Great Music! Modern day William Grant Still! I played jazz for some years and flute is my primary, along with tenor. Wonderful music! Long live the spirit of Coltrane! Peace and many blessings to you.
