Ameen Saleem, one of the most talented bass players on the international jazz scene, debuts on the music market worldwide in October with his first album as leader, "The Groove Lab". This outstanding album recorded in New York, produced by Jando Music and Via Veneto Jazz, is remarkably colourful, reflecting the artistic ferment of the multifaceted lifestyle of New York and Brooklyn: powerful groovy waves, funk beats and jazz vibes, bluesy solos and rock electric guitar solos - all bound together with remarkable fluidity, revealing empathic group interplay and innovative ways to work within jazz.The very title of this unique album reflects the constant research and interweaving of musical genres and styles, which has long been object of study and experimentation at Ameen Saleem’s studio apartment in Flat Bush, a temple where endless sessions on sound and rhythm take place - a real "groove lab" where Ameen has assembled a stellar cast of musicians to play his original compositions.
