One of premier guitarist and arranger Terry Wollman’s early influences was the seminal soul band, Tower Of Power. After recovering from a hip injury a few years ago it was playfully suggested that he include “What Is Hip?” in his live show. Terry took the idea to heart and decided to put his own unique spin on this iconic song. The new single featuring Wollman’s signature acoustic guitar melodies, funky electric guitars, sizzling horn arrangement and hitmaker band has everything needed for this high energy summer hit!
From his critically acclaimed debut album,“Bimini” to his 25 year retrospective “Silver Collection”, and the recent “Cassini’s Last Dance”, Wollman’s songs, arrangements and production continue to reach straight into the heart of each listener. With over 30 years in the music business, Terry has produced and performed with an array of artists including Melissa Manchester, Keb’ Mo’, Al Jarreau, Dave Koz, Billy Preston, Michael McDonald, Alan Bergman with Dave Grusin, Tony Bennett, Dick Van Dyke and many more.
His latest offering features artists Bob James, Najee, Andy Snitzer, Greg Manning, Ricky Kej, Wayne Bergeron and special guest vocalists Melanie Taylor, Connie Jackson and Ellis Hall. Terry is proud to present “Surface”, a unique global musical collaboration, and a true journey of songs and stories infused with gratitude and attitude.
