Criss Cross Jazz 1331 CD

Brian Lynch and Spheres of Influence

ConClave vol. 2

Available: February 15, 2011

A versatile trumpeter able to navigate in both the Jazz and Latin music fields, Grammy Award winner Brian Lynch returns to the Criss Cross fold with ConClave Volume 2, a tour-de-force for his revamped Spheres of Influence ensemble.

Up-and-comers Yosvany Terry on alto, Manuel Valera on piano, with bassist Luques Curtis, drummer Justin Brown, and percussionist Pedro Martinez make the scene for a diverse set of mainly Lynch originals.

Mixing the Afro-Cuban beat with touches of samba and funk, Lynch comes up with his best concoction to date of spicy Latin sounds.
