Roland Prince

Roland Prince (August 27, 1946 — July 16, 2016) was a jazz-funk guitarist from Antigua and Barbuda, an archipelago in the Lesser Antilles. Between 1971 and 1975, he played on albums by Buddy Terry, Pete Yellin, Larry Willis, Elvin Jones, Shirley Scott, and Johnny Hartman.

In 1976, Prince released his solo debut Color Visions on the Vangaurd label. The following year, he issued the sophomoric Free Spirit and also co-headlined the album Summit Meeting with fellow jazz heavyweights. The late ’70s also found him on albums by Don Pullen, Frank Foster, and James Moody.
