Roland Barber has enjoyed a career full of diverse and exciting musical pursuits, achieving such powerful, soulful, and spiritual artistry as a jazz performer that Curtis Fuller (John Coltrane’s only trombonist) exclaimed upon hearing him, “Now THAT’s what jazz trombone is all about!” Roland’s style is a synthesis of jazz’s finest elements. sporting a keen, fluent command of the bebop language tempered with a compelling sense of melodic “voice” that’s rooted in the swagger and soul of the blues and swing traditions.
