Famous drummer




Herlin Riley

One of the newest members of the Wynton Marsalis band, drummer Herlin Riley took over in a difficult spot when he replaced the outstanding Jeff Watts in the late '80s. But he's become a more effective player on Marsalis' albums, not yet as steady or assertive as Watts, but influencing the music more on such releases as The Majesty of the Blues and Uptown Ruler. Riley can also be heard on the soundtrack Tune In Tomorrow, Levee Low Moan and Standard Time, Vol. 3 - The Resolution of Romance. His debut as a leader, Watch What You're Doing, followed in early 2000. By Ron Wynn The All Music Guide
