The Bicoastal Collective led by PAUL TYNAN [tpt] and AARON LINGTON [bari] is very lively on their latest recording CHAPTER FIVE [OA2 Records 22143]. This is a well rehearsed 18 piece big band that is full of solid soloists. The program [65:24] comprises 8 originals (4 each from Lington and Tynan) and much of it originally written with members of the collective in mind. The music is full of twists and turns and slashes of brass and with an underlying momentum which is effective and nicely scored for soloists. Recorded 7/7&8/16, this music jumps out from the beginning. Both leaders are alumni of North Texas State and there is a reflection of Kenton filtered through NTSU's One O'Clock Lab Band. Solid writing and soloists.
