Terry Wollman: Buddha's Ear

itunes

BUDDHAS EAR (2011)

“With Buddha’s Ear, extraordinary musician Terry Wollman offers up a tasty blend of several musical styles including smooth jazz, Latin-salsa, world beat, and adult contemporary pop, all served up in a single, consistent sonic landscape.

With help from the likes of Keb Mo, Melissa Manchester, (ex-Pretender) Robbie McIntosh, Luis Conte, and Abraham Laboriel, Wollman’s guitar work is showcased inside some brilliant original songs such as ‘Mandela’, ‘Gettin’ Ready To Get Ready,’ ‘A Mother’s Work,’ and ‘Right Where You Are.’ Guaranteed to remove the tension from your life.

“Go ahead, cancel that appointment with your therapist and get this CD instead.” – Bruce Pilato, Music writer for Variety

“there will be a lot of babies born next year who will have been listening to terry wollman since…well, since conception.”
 Bruce Vilanch

“Terry’s loving heart infuses every moment of this album and his spectacular musicianship is pure joy”. 
Jason Alexander

“What a beautiful album. Terry is incredibly talented.” Barry Manilow
