Roland enjoys a wide spectrum of artists, but he favors Miles Davis, John Coltrane, piano players like Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Keith Jarrett, as well as a wide range of singers. He keeps up with the cutting edge by attending the yearly Monterey Jazz Festival as well as many club concerts. Roland became interested in jazz in the 50’s growing up in Newark listening on the sidewalks outside of clubs as well as shows at the Savoy and R&B at the Paramount. Roland travels frequently including visits to see his 8 grandchildren and is on several boards including the Westcliffe Center for the Performing Arts and the Colorado Conservation Trust. Roland has been a regular on Music Your Way.
