Jazz at Lincoln Center
With drummer Herlin Riley, bassist Russell Hall, saxophonist Godwin Louis, and pianist Emmet Cohen Veteran drummer and founding Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra member Herlin Riley has been the drummer of choice for bandleaders such as Ahmad Jamal and Wynton Marsalis. Riley’s sound is rooted in his home of New Orleans, but his rhythmic vocabulary expands miles beyond any one style or location. At Dizzy’s, he will demonstrate his skills as bandleader, with a quintet featuring some of the best young talent in New York, including pianist Emmet Cohen, bassist Russell Hall, and saxophonist Godwin Louis. Groove comes first when Riley is on drums, and these performances are going to be a good time!
