Brian Lynch and Emmet Cohen – Questioned Answer (Digital Download) ()

This intergenerational collaboration between Grammy© Award winning trumpeter Brian Lynch and new piano star on the modern jazz horizon Emmet Cohen combines new school excitement and exuberant swing, and is shaping up to be one of the must have discs for late 2014. In the quartet setting, joined by legendary drummer Billy Hart and master bassist Boris Kozlov, Lynch and Cohen present a program of their own searching and often epic original music, bridging traditional and contemporary sounds with virtuosity, passion and swinging aplomb. And as a duo, they essay and recast jazz classics and standards (both classic and contemporary) with warmth, intelligence and lack of cliche, often journeying into uncharted territory only bound by their searching imagination and desire to swing.

The musical lock between Lynch and Cohen has roots that go beyond the work they’ve put in towards crafting a distinctive sound in both quartet and duo formats. Their common ground in committing to grounded, yet contemporary and cliche-free playing and composing, combined with the mixture of Lynch’s magisterial command and Cohen’s poised beyond his years musicality, has resulted in a original and compelling group sound tailored for the contemporary listener.

The downloadable version of Questioned Answer includes a extra bonus track, and is downloadable in the digital format of your choice.

Unsung Heroes Vol. 2 ()

Immediate download of 10-track album in your choice of 320k mp3, FLAC, or just about any other format you could possibly desire. Also included: A PDF liner booklet with complete information and cover art.

Clicking “buy now” will take you to bandcamp.com for fulfillment of your order.

Unsung Heroes” pays tribute to and features the compositions of jazz trumpet giants such as Joe Gordon, Tommy Turrentine, Idrees Sulieman, and other greats who have flown under the radar of popular acclaim despite their artistry and influence on players such as myself. This expansive project, the maiden effort from Hollistic MusicWorks, comprises no less than 19 different compositions; a full 2 CDs of swinging music featuring the Unsung Heroes band of myself, alto sax giant Vincent Herring, new tenor sax star Alex Hoffman, veteran piano whiz Rob Schneiderman, top call bassist David Wong, and swinging young drummer Pete Van Nostrand, with conga king Little Johnny Rivero added on selected cuts.

The multiple subjects of this collection of unpretentious, straight ahead, and hopefully satisfying jazz music are artists without which the jazz trumpet tradition would be very much impoverished, yet are not familiar to even many a knowledgeable follower of the music. They are also players and composers that have touched my soul and influenced me in both disciplines. Their notoriety ranges from those generally recognized by the cognoscenti to others almost completely unknown except to the specialist,but they all have one thing in common in that their art has been under appreciated. I hope you enjoy this salute to these Unsung Heroes, only some of many in the rich tradition of our music.
