Robby Ameen And El Negro At The Third World War (La Timba No Es Como Ayer)
Horacio "El Negro" Hernandez Robby Ameen And El Negro At The Third World War (La Timba No Es Como Ayer) CD (American Clave 1031), Released 2004; Editor's Pick: Groove on 10, as the two drummers move from rumbas to spacious jazz to hard P-Funk like funk. Slight melodic elements add color, but essentially, gloriously and unapologetically, the groove is the ruler. The two friends are joined by Puntilla Rios, Richie Flores, Luis Perdomo, Ruben Rodriguez and on one track, Ruben Blades singing "Sympathy for the Devil," proving once and for all that he isn't Mick Jagger. Great traveling music: put it in the car stereo, turn it up, and cruise. Highly Recommended. (Peter Watrous, 2004-12-05) Song titles include: Medley: Sympathy For The Devil/El Cielo 3 For Africa Un Golpecito Na'Mas Richie's Brain Hit This, Split This All Jazz Era (al-jazeera) Blue Red & White The Moon Shows Red (...
