Downbeat CD Review – “Bolero Nights for Billie Holiday,” Brian Lynch Afro Cuban Jazz Orchestra (May 2010)
"So easy to recommend almost all of the 15 albums Brian Lynch has made under his own name since turning heads with the release of his strong hard-bop launch, Peer Pressure, in 1986. (Exceptions: 1989’s Back Room Blues and 2007’s fusion fluke Fuchsia/Red). His newest comes filled with perhaps his most expressive trumpet and flugelhorn […]"

New York Times Concert Review – Making Room for Some Latin Polish and Propulsion (July 28, 2007) | Nate Chinen | New York Times
"Jazz in July, the long-running concert series at the 92nd Street Y, concluded its current season on Thursday night in anomalous fashion. In a concert featuring the pianist Eddie Palmieri and the trumpeter Brian Lynch, the tradition-minded series made room for Latin jazz: the real thing, piquant and polished, with an urgent approach to propulsion. And this experiment in programming, if that’s what you want to call it, was an exuberant success."

New York Times Performance Review – 2 Collaborators Meld Like Latin and Jazz (Nov.18, 2006) | Ben Ratliff | The New York Times
"The pianist Eddie Palmieri took a secondary role in a gig on Thursday night, something he doesn’t often do. It was in a Latin jazz group that looks a lot like one of Mr. Palmieri’s, but was led by the trumpeter Brian Lynch, who has played with Mr. Palmieri for almost 20 years. Together, as the Brian Lynch/Eddie Palmieri Project, they have made a new record, “Simpatico” (ArtistShare). As a busman’s holiday, the record lets Mr. Lynch put forward some of his own Latin-jazz compositions, and lets Mr. Palmieri play some straight-ahead jazz piano."
