A vital force and emergent legend within both the hardcore straight ahead and Latin Jazz communities, Grammy© Award Winner Brian Lynch is as comfortable negotiating the complexities of clave with Afro-Caribbean pioneer Eddie Palmieri as he is swinging through advanced harmony with bebop maestro Phil Woods. A honored graduate of Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers and the Horace Silver
Quintet, he has been a valued collaborator with jazz artists such as Toshiko Akiyoshi and Charles McPherson; Latin music icons as diverse as Hector
LaVoe and Lila Downs; and pop luminaries such as Prince. He won the 2007 Grammy for Best Latin Jazz CD and three additional nominations, including 2017.
