Terry Wollman Releases New Single “NO PROBLEM” And Kicked Off Weekly Residence At Nerano With Songstress Melanie Taylor And Special Guest Melissa Manchester
Master guitarist, producer, composer, musical director and arranger Terry Wollman has just released a new single, “No Problem,” already #1 most added on Billboard Smooth Jazz chart, SmoothJazz.com and Radio Wave Internet Airplay. The song, which he wrote, arranged and produced, features enviable musicians including Mindi Abair on alto sax, Greg Manning on keyboards, Hussain Jiffry on bass and John "JR" Robinson on drums. “I absolutely love playing electric guitar. When I had the opportunity to go into the studio with these wonderful musicians, I knew this song was the perfect choice for a live recording session,” said Terry. He recorded the song, which he calls a “burning electric blues shuffle,” using his AC Plus, SP Compressor, EP Booster and Xotic Wah.
Terry just started a weekly Tuesday night residency in the intimate upstairs club at Nerano in Beverly Hills with vocalist Melanie Taylor and surprise guest Melissa Manchester (for whom he recently co-produced an album). Melanie will join him weekly when not on tour with Barry Manilow or any of the other superstars who vie for her background vocals. There will be special surprise guests joining Terry weekly for a mix of classic songs, current hits and original music.
Wollman has performed and/or recorded with an array of artists including Dionne Warwick, Little Richard, Melissa Manchester, Al Jarreau, Joan Baez, Joe Walsh, Keb’ Mo’, Dave Koz and Michael McDonald, to name a few. He has numerous TV credits including his stints as musical director for The Late Show (Fox) with Jack Mack & The Heart Attack and The Byron Allen Show (NBC). Most recently, he was the music director for the acclaimed HBO documentary, If You’re Not in the Obit, Eat Breakfast, narrated by Carl Reiner, featuring Betty White, Tony Bennett, Mel Brooks, and Dick Van Dyke. He produced the songs in the film which include the original composition “Just Getting Started” written by Dave Grusin and Alan & Marilyn Bergman, and classics sung by Bennett and Van Dyke.
