Grammy award-winning drummer Robby Ameen's latest release, "Days in the Night"
features his all-star working band laying down some high-energy, cutting-edge
Afro-Cuban, funk and post-bop jazz. Also participating as an invited guest is Robby's
longtime employer Ruben Blades, taking us on a journey of guaguanco, salsa and timba
jazz. The band's lengthy and wide history of playing together allows them to move and
react through a variety of genres while still retaining the focus and understanding of a
group sound. Most of the repertoire consists of Robby's original compositions and
arrangements, incorporating the many styles and influences he has absorbed as a
sideman for such diverse artists as Ruben Blades, Jack Bruce, Dizzy Gillespie, Dave
Valentin, Paul Simon and Eddie Palmieri, while also leading his own bands over the last
decade and more.The album also includes several duets between Robby and Troy
Roberts exploring the freedom in the pairing of sax and drums while playing over
interesting form-based arrangements. "Days in the Night" is a record that lives up to the
realization that progressive jazz can go into so many different directions as long as the
integrity of its roots are still respected, that categories are less relevant than ever before,
and that one can be free to use all of one's listening and playing experiences to go
beyond preconceived labels...
