Jazz and Modernist French Music: A Two Way Street
Brian Lynch, trumpeter/composer; Hervé Sellin, pianist/composer ; Bill Goodwin, veteran drummer and jazz legend; David Wong, bass virtuoso

Grammy Award winning trumpeter/composer Brian Lynch and esteemed pianist/composer Hervé Sellin join forces to present a unique program of music exploring the connection between French musical modernism and jazz. In their original compositions and arrangements of important works from both traditions, Lynch and Sellin will shed light on the mutual influence of French music and jazz, from Bix to Coltrane and beyond, and from Debussy to Dutilleux and Messiaen.

Joining Lynch and Sellin in this special quartet are two esteemed figures representing different jazz generations and their felicitous meeting: veteran drummer and jazz legend Bill Goodwin, Lynch’s longtime bandmate in the Phil Woods Quintet, and swinging virtuoso David Wong, bassist of choice for the jazz elite (Roy Haynes, The Heath Brothers) and member of Lynch’s Unsung Heroes Project.

This project and performance is supported by a Chamber Music America / French American Cultural Exchange “French-American Jazz Exchange” grant and is made possible by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, CulturesFrance, the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, the Florence Gould Foundation, and SACEM.
