“Ed Roth is one of those hard to find musicians who is truly in it for the music,” said guitarist Robby Krieger. “He’s one of those guys who really loves to play, and wants to get it right, no matter how long it takes. I love playing with him because of his laid back feel. I hope you like the songs on this album as much as I do.”
While releasing three prior instrumental contemporary jazz albums this decade, Roth is perhaps best known as an in-demand session musician and performer who has played with a variety of musicians in many, styles and genres. He’s worked with Shelby Lynne, Joe Walsh, The Avett Brothers, R&B superstars The Brothers Jonson and Mya, pop stars Annie Lennox and Taylor Dayne and rock legends like Ronnie Montrose, Keith Emerson, Glenn Hughes (of Deep Purple), Rob Halford and Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
