Lincoln Goines is one of New York's most respected and recorded bassists. His concept of the bass as a rhythm instrument, and his ability to incorporate traditional Latin lines with ideas drawn from percussion patterns, can be heard on recordings with well known Latin-jazz artists Dave Valenting, Michel Camilo, Gato Barbieri, Paquito D'Rivera, Tania Maria, and Eliane Elias. Lincoln is also known for his contemporary jazz-funk playing with John Scofiel, Mike Stern, and Bob Berg. Bobby Ameen has made a life study of Afro-Cuban rhythms and combines this knowledge with his own powerful drumming style to create a highly original funk/Afro-Cuban amalgam. Robby's ability to complement a Latin rhythm section can be heard on recordings with Ruben Blades, Dave Valentin, Dizzy Gillespie, Kip Hanrahan, and Eddie Palmieri, among many others. Robby has also worked with Paquito D'Rivera, Gato Barbieri, Willie Colon, and Paul Simon.
