Product Notes

My last album was for me and this one is for all of you. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it. Streams & Stairwells The title of the CD was inspired by a couple places I enjoyed playing guitar; a relaxing stream in Georgia and the stairwell of my college dorm. The sound of each was truly amazing. 1. 'River Passage' This song always felt like floating down a stream that gave way to a river with a light drizzle overhead possibly coming from a distant waterfall. 2. 'December' A song written on a Cuban 12 string 'Laúd' given to me for Christmas by my best friend Robert. I named this song December to pay tribute to the season of giving. 3. 'Hope's Journey' Dedicated to my father, Angel Alvarez, and his journey of hope. 1924-1985 And to all the wonderful people that are part of mine. (yes that means you too!) 4. 'Starry Night Drive' It reminds me of a midnight road trip completely overtaken by the vast clarity of stars and a feeling reminiscent of Van Gogh's painting. 5. 'Streams & Stairwells' 1987 The song that started it all -- on the rocks, of the stream, behind Banning Mill. A wonderfully long piece that I just get lost in especially with the sound of a stream playing throughout. The song takes you on a relaxing journey of thoughts. 6. 'Morning Light' Simply a beautiful way to wake up. A walk in the woods as the dew dries and sunshine glows through the leaves to the east. Thanks to all my wonderful friends and family for listening, advice, and encouragement. Love always, Roland --- produced and performed by Roland Alvarez at Colada Mix, Miami 2011 using Manley & Neumann microphones. Track 5 recorded at Atlanta College of Art 1987 in Nolan's Experimental sound room. Assistant engineer on track 3 Sunil Alvarez. Cover photo from Banning Mill, near Atlanta GA and the stairs are from Vizcaya Museum in Miami, FL.
