Italian born guitarist Roberto Tola brings a fascinating 30 year history to BEIN’ GREEN, his ultra-melodic, playfully grooving and breezily exotic debut Smooth Jazz album. In the 80s, he led JAZZMANIA before joining the Italian jazz big band ensemble Blue Note Orchestra. For over 20 years, he was the official guitar of the “Orchestra Jazz della Sardegna” (Sardinia Jazz Orchestra), based in his hometown. Among the hundreds of artists Tola has performed with are British singer Jill Saward and Yellowjackets saxman Bob Mintzer, who join a dynamic all-star guest list (also featuring Najee and Bill McGee) to help the nimble electric and acoustic guitarist create the album’s fascinating emotional and rhythmic ebbs and flows. Forget what Kermit once sang… it’s easy BEIN’ GREEN!
