Herlin Riley's 'New Direction', sees the New Orleans drummer with a fierce musical intelligence and prodigious skills, lead a fine group of outstanding young musicians, including players from Haiti and Jamaica. Veteran guitarist Mark Whitfield and Cuba's Pedrito Martinez on percussion are Herlin's special guests.

New Orleans ambassador of drumming, Herlin Riley has recorded with many of the bayou's favourite sons including Harry Connick Jr., Dr. John, Marcus Roberts and toured in Wynton Marsalis' band for more than six years. For 'New Direction' - his first leader date in many years - Herlin chose originals and local favorites resulting in an eclectic and heady mix. Herlin speaks of his process: "I have a radio in my head that plays melodies and tunes, then I sit down at the piano and work it out. Once you start writing and engaging in the music it takes you to different places…" hence, New Direction. Magnificent, N'awlins dipped neo-bop, funk jazz. Where will it take you?
