Keep Your Circle Small – Brian Lynch

Full of angular lines and unpredictable harmonies, this song is an exciting challenge. There's quite a bit of dialogue between the melody and rhythm section figures, fully notated in our Concert Condensed Scores (for both Brian's quartet and quintet recordings). We also have "as recorded" horn parts from the latter arrangement.

Brian Lynch

born on September 12, 1956

Grammy Award-winner Brian Lynch is one of the most influential and well-respected trumpeters in both Latin and straight-ahead jazz. Brian grew up in Milwaukee and apprenticed with Midwest-based keyboardists Buddy Montgomery and Melvin Rhyne; he went on to earn his degree from the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music. After moving to New York in 1981, he earned his stripes working with jazz giants such as Art Blakey, Horace Silver, Barbarito Torres, and Phil Woods. Lynch recorded many records as a leader—23 since he began recording in 1986. Read more...
