I want to live in a world where my glass is always half full!" That's the inspiring maxim of New Orleans master drummer Herlin Riley. On his second Mack Avenue Records release, Perpetual Optimism, the longtime anchor of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra preaches his silver-lined gospel on 10 tracks whose joyous spirit and contagious swing are sure to convert any listener to the bright side. In the end, Riley hopes that the music of Perpetual Optimism helps spread the upbeat manifesto that he's chosen to live by. "I always look forward, no matter what happens in life. If you're grieving or faced with an emotional challenge, keep in mind: If you're still breathing, there's a chance that you can overcome and thrive. Commit yourself to Perpetual Optimism!
