Brian Lynch Headlines a Brilliant Cross-Pollinating Night at Iridium

You’ve got your clear-as-a-bell, mystically deep trumpeters: Miles Davis, Freddie Hubbard, Pam Fleming. You’re got your adrenalizing monsters: Peter Evans, Terrell Stafford, Tim Hagans. Then there are the ones who are both on an unpredictably regular basis: Ingrid Jensen and Brian Lynch, for starters. Lynch – who absolutely kills on the recent release by the South Florida Big Band – has an especially enticing show coming up at Iridium this Sunday, July 28 with rising star pianist Emmet Cohen plus the august Peter Washington and wild card Billy Hart on drums. Sets are at 8 and 10 PM.

Lynch has recently made a mark as both resurrector of perhaps unfairly neglected talent, and champion of future stars. Lynch’s blend of exhilarating, hard-charging bop and lyricism, Cohen’s reflective third-stream glimmer and the bass and drums’ rich legacy combine for a potentially transcendent evening.
