It has been an honor and pleasure to work alongside some very talented people.
I am grateful for all we have been able to accomplish together.
I asked Rolando to compose a piece of music meant to feel like a classic film for a Woody Allen project. His sophistication and skill brought the scene to life. Rolando is up there with the great contemporary film composers in his abilities and creativity. Every time I play the sequence with his music I am blown away.
He is the newcomer who is New York's hidden jewel!
I've known Rolando from quite a while and it was more recently that we finally worked together. When I presented him with the film that was to be our first director-composer collaboration I had a complete blank on what the score would be. This man knew from the beginning and it was, very simply put, flawless. Rolando possess the gift of creative innovation and it results in magic every single time. There's a seamless, rhythmic and awesome artistic vibe you feel when you work with him and when you hear his music. It brings you so much joy to hear it all come to life. He is an exceptional maestro, and a great friend too.

Rolando's scoring achieves that rare trifecta of balance form and energy. He is as skilled with smaller moments as he is with big, bold action, and never fails to create a unique, unexpected and vibrant soundscape.
He also produced my first solo album, Free World, with such a masterful ear that and light touch, and I couldn't be happier with the result. His contributions to the vocal and instrumental arrangements, compositional ideas and, perhaps most especially, his knowing when to say "enough", helped to make our time in the studio the most satisfying recording experience of my life.
