New CD Release from the Adams Robinson Project!

Supervision Needed brings together New Orleans legends Marc Adams and Allyn Robinson for a long awaited project featuring a classic collection of soul, funk, R&B, and blues gems.

Allyn and Marc have been working together for more than 30-years and the chemistry is clearly evident on this record. Providing additional supervision are: John Fohl (Guitar), Chuck Archard (Bass) and Jason Mingledorff (Saxophones), with special guest appearances by Colin Lake (Lap Steel Guitar), John Burny Robinson (Bass), Michael Skinkus (Percussion) and Eric Traub (Saxophone).

This record developed from a series of Sunday jam sessions at Marc's house, with the boys having a blast and throwing down some killer grooves! The result, a feel-good-hang with some of New Orleans' finest musicians. Sit back, hit "Play," and let your soul settle in!

Amelia Video Release - A Tribute To Jaco Pastorius

Allyn is excited to announce the release of the first video from his new CD, Dreams Realized, My Life In Music!

42 years after the original 1972 live recording with Jaco Pastorius on bass and Allyn on drums, Allyn entered the studio in New Orleans to record a heartfelt tribute to his dear friend and rhythm mate. "Amelia" was one of Jaco's first compositions recorded live in 1972 while he was playing with Wayne Cochran and The C.C. Riders.

The live track was released on Punk Jazz: The Jaco Pastorius Anthology and Portrait of Jaco: The Early Years and offers a spirited glimpse into the chemistry between Allyn and Jaco at a very formative time in their musical careers.

The "Amelia" video was shot at Axistudios in Metairie, Louisiana, and features a 15-piece big band. There are three burning solos by Bobby Campo, Rick Trolsen and Cranston Clements. The video provides an inside look at the power R&B groove reminiscent of the original nesting bed Allyn laid down in the early 1970s.

Laced with his signature greasy ghost notes and nuanced use of space, Allyn lays down the quintessential Cochran-esque track for bassist Chuck Archard to bond with. From 1972 to 2014, the intensity remains and the spirit of Jaco is alive and well!

Allyn was featured in the September 2012 Issue of Modern Drummer magazine.

The article provides a wonderful retrospective on Allyn's career, including a discussion of his close relationship with Jaco Pastorius, a rare perspective on Allyn from Peter Erskine, and a highlight of his current projects.

From Wayne Cochran and the C.C. Riders to Dr. Hook, Tab Benoit, and dozens of other collaborations - Allyn holds a special place in music history. We are excited for everyone to read the article and would especially like to thank Cleve Warren and the whole team at Modern Drummer magazine!
