Each complements the other in just the right way, while still showing a true command of his instrument with a very studied and soulful essence.
While retaining the thoroughly modern post-bop aesthetic they cultivated over their first 3 recordings, the Halifax-based trumpeter Paul Tynan and baritone saxophonist Aaron Lington from San Jose, CA, decided to tackle the hard-bop organ band format for their latest. Joining them on 7 original compositions are guitarist Jake Hanlon, organist Tony Genge, and drummer Terry O'Mahoney. Through their composition and improvisation, the Bicoastal Collective creates engaging and passionate music. "...fresh and vibrant..." - Scott Yanow.

Insanely tasty and on the mark without feeling like an homage or other ...
All About Jazz (Jack Bowers)
Trumpeter Paul Tynan and baritone saxophonist Aaron Lington first met more than fifteen years ago when they were grad students at the University of North Texas in Denton. After gigging separately for a few years, they formed the Bicoastal Collective about a decade ago and have been playing and recording together ever since. This could reasonably be ...
Wondering Sound (Dave Sumner)
A real old-school sound on this one, with the B3 organ of Tony Genge as the lynchpin. Trumpeter Paul Tynan and bari saxophonist Aaron Lington alternate hot and cold temps with their solos over the top. Guitarist Jake Hanlon and drummer Terry O'Mahoney snap right into place with Genge's action, and work just fine as a trio unit when the wind instr ...
