The Brian Lynch Big Band



  • I don't know how I missed this band but I'd never heard of them until I was looking at the results of the Grammys a few weeks ago. Since then I've probably listened to this record 40 or 50 times. I can't get enough of it. While I'm sad The Phat Band didn't get a nomination (The Gordian Knot is outstanding) I'm happy that someone is representing modern big band jazz with pride and ability.

  • Man, I was at a jazz festival years ago and stayed at the same hotel as a lot of the performers. Late on Saturday night, a jam session erupted in the lobby, and went on for hours. Brian Lynch was one of the group, and I sat down there right in front and drank it all in till about 3 in the morning. That guy was phenomenal !
