Miami, October 26, 2011 - Miami Dade College’s (MDC) Arts and Philosophy Department at Wolfson Campus continues its successful live music series, Jazz at Wolfson Presents, featuring trumpeter and Grammy-winner Brian Lynch at noonWednesday, Nov. 9.
A highly esteemed, influential and versatile musician, 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.
An honored graduate of Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers and the Horace Silver Quinte, two of the world’s most distinguished jazz academies, Lynch has collaborated with jazz greats Benny Golson, Toshiko Akiyoshi and Charles McPherson, as well as Latin music icons Hector Lavoe and Lila Downs, and pop luminaries, such as Prince.
As a bandleader and recording artist, Lynch released a series of critically-acclaimed albums featuring his distinctive composing and arranging. He also has toured the world with various ensembles reflecting the wide sweep of his music.
“It is a thrill to have Brian come to the campus and perform,” says Dr. Michael Di Liddo, guitarist and director of the Jazz at Wolfson Presents series. “He is a world-class musician with great experience that the music students will benefit from and everyone will enjoy.”
MDC’s Jazz at Wolfson Presents features live performances that run monthly from September through April. The concerts are free and open to the public.
