Brian Lynch / Emmet Cohen Quartet and Duo – Questioned Answer

Hollistic MusicWorks HMW 12  Street Date: Oct. 28, 2014

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 uncliched 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.
