With five albums over almost thirty years, Terry Wollman can never be accused of over exposure. Yet from his 1986 debut, ‘Bimini’, to the follow up ‘Say Yes’ (which hit the streets twelve years later) and the 2012 triumph ‘Buddha’s Ear’, this acclaimed songwriter and producer has always been an interesting presence on the contemporary jazz scene. In fact ‘Buddha’s Ear’ garnered the hit single ‘Mandela’ (that featured Mindi Abair and was written by Terry in collaboration with Keb Mo) while for his latest venture, ‘The Very Best – Silver Collection’, he is taking a nostalgic look at the best from those previous projects.
In fact the track that is previewing the release of ‘The Very Best – Silver Collection’ is ‘Welcome To Paradise’ that just happens to be the very first track from that very first 1986 CD. It finds him teaming with Dave Koz, Greg Manning, Johan Robinson, Luis Conte, and Abraham Laboriel for a high tempo smooth jazz extravaganza that, with a splash of Latin spice added for good measure, is sure to play well in a live environment.
