Rolando Grooscors is a rare find on today’s jazz scene: a unique voice that strengthens and expands the jazz idiom with sensitivity, clarity, and uncompromising integrity. Rolando’s warm, expressive tones and impeccable phrasing have been delighting audiences wherever he goes.
The two-time Grammy nominee and 2011 winner was born in Caracas, Venezuela. His love for Brazil motivated him to start different projects where Brazilian music was infused with Latin and Jazz influences. Here he began to develop a Jazz/Fusion style. The experience greatly influenced Rolando’s musical development. On 14 albums as a sideman, Rolando has recorded his own CD, “Thankful,” which has garnered positive criticism and acclaim from notable jazz musicians. The band is a sextet including Piano/keyboards, Bass, Sax/wind controller, drums, and percussion. His compositions have been called “masterful” and with the attention already received, Rolando is pushing himself to have his voice defined in music, both as a sideman and as a band leader.
“Rolando’s guitar playing is on another level, Yet on this higher plane, Rolando’s soulful, creative, twelve tone improvisatory style is always completely accessible and joyous. Rolando displays a wide variety of styles and concepts with his harmonic and melodic imagery capturing the essence of musical freedom,spirit and sensual.” -Darryl Tookes
