“Romero” by Robert Sabin (Jazz Artist from New York City, New York(NY))

RadioIndy is pleased to present Robert Sabin with a GrIndie award for his CD "Romero"!
"Romero" by Robert Sabin puts a unique spin on what we know as jazz. Innovative compositions are brought to life by Robert's skilled musicianship. These free-flowing structures vary widely in mood, from very dark and somber to mysterious. "Helicopters" and "ZWKDD" both exhibit great brass arrangements, and assume a form closest to traditional jazz. "Dog Shot" radiates a very thick theatrical atmosphere of dread and mystery. Moreover, "Monkey Farm" takes on a nice rock edge with its lead electric guitar melodies. All in all, "Romero" is an outstanding instrumental jazz collection finished with brilliant production! Fans of jazz will be both intrigued and amazed by this collection!
