Robby Ameen: Diluvio

Read "Diluvio" reviewed by Jack Bowers

It's a given that wherever Grammy-winning drummer Robby Ameen goes, irrepressible rhythm is sure to follow.

Ameen's half-dozen compositions are intrepid and lively, and even Gerry Mulligan's “Line for Lyons" and John Coltrane's “Impressions," which seal the album, are ...

Troy Roberts: Days Like These

Read "Days Like These" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Days like these, when you have the opportunity to hear Troy Roberts fronting an all-star organ group, are pretty nice. Roberts--one of the most underappreciated tenor saxophonists on the scene, a mainstay in organ kingpin Joey DeFrancesco's band and an erstwhile sideman for drummer Jeff “Tain" Watts--shows a particular affinity for this format. A complete artist ...
