All About Jazz

Discovering their musical kinship while attending the University of North Texas, Nova Scotia-based trumpeter/flugelhornist Paul Tynan and baritone saxophonist Aaron Lington from the Bay Area haven't let logistics get in the way of its ongoing development over the 16 years of this bicoastal partnership. Combining their original works, musician friends old and new, and specific concepts for each project, they've created five wide-ranging works, each spurring on the next incarnation of the collective. For Chapter Six, they pair with the New York rhythm team of electric bassist Trifon Dimitrov and drummer Joe Abba for a chord-less quartet where they explore sounds and timbres through electronics, grooves and aesthetics captured from late-stage Miles Davis, and generally open the door to the possibilities of the moment.

Jazz'halo (Belgium) (Ferdinand Dupuis-Panther)
Tynan and Lington have been working together musically for 16 years. In addition, we read about the band of trumpeter Tynan and baritone saxophonist Lington: "Combining their original works, musician friends old & new, and specific concepts for each project, they've created five wide-ranging works, each spurring on the next incarnation of the colle ...

All About Jazz (Jack Bowers)
In jazz terms, trumpeter Paul Tynan and baritone saxophonist Aaron Lington's Bicoastal Collective is a long-running series, as this marks the sixth recording produced during their sixteen-year partnership. As Chapters One to Five were splendid, it might have been advisable to close the book there. However, Tynan and Lington have chosen to forge ahe ...

WTJU (Russell Perry)
Both trumpeter Paul Tynan (Nova Scotia) and baritone player Aaron Lingston (San Jose) have serious classical music chops and both are master jazz players. For this, their sixth collaboration, they have chosen a chord-less trumpet – baritone – bass – drums quartet and it has nothing to do with the famous Gerry Mulligan / Chet Baker or Art Far ...
