Roland Prince !!

I posted these albums back in 2012, when I first started blogging
after stumbling upon CD versions; Well worth the purchase.
The wiki page for Roland is incredibly short, literally stating
'Roland Prince was an Antiguan jazz guitarist. He was born in
St. John's. He died on July 15, 2016 aged 69.' There are
other sources to read about him, and sadly he was a part of
the mass musician exodus that was 2016.
