The Brian Lynch “Unsung Heroes” Project
Performing the music from Brian Lynch’s acclaimed (5 star rating in Downbeat Magazine) Unsung Heroes recording project. Classic yet fresh, the band’s book includes newly discovered compositions by under- appreciated trumpet masters such as Louis Smith, Tommy Turrentine, and Idrees Sulieman, along with Lynch’s originals in tribute to these unsung heroes. The multigenerational band, in quintet or sextet formats, mix established figures (alto sax star Vincent Herring and veteran pianist Rob Schneiderman) and top up and comers on the New York scene (tenor saxist Alex Hoffman, bassist David Wong, and drummer Peter Van Nostrand). This band’s special chemistry and playing affinity has been noted in both recording and performance. The Unsung Heroes band has performed at jazz venues and festivals worldwide, including the Detroit Jazz Festival, the Amazonas Jazz Festival in Manauas, Brazil, Jazz Jakarta in Jakarta, Indonesia, and US venues such as Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola in NYC.
