I first brought Brian here in April of 1999 to play with Brad, André and Dylan van der Schyff just before I bought The Cellar. Lynch was thoroughly impressed with the trio and expressed an interest in coming back. He did in fact come back the following year to play with the Mike Allen Trio one night and Brad the next, only this time with Bernie Arai on drums. The music was incredible but unfortunately the crowd was not. A timing error on my part was the reason for the light attendance. As Turner was tearing it up on piano, Lynch got my attention and in my ear whispered "hey man, thats a funky shirt you're wearing, you may as well give it to me seeing as you're losing it anyways." I knew at that point that we would be friends for life. Another year or so passed and as Lynch was figuring out his next trip out west, he stumbled across Cellar Live and started inquiring about the possibility of doing a record. The thought of that was very exciting to me. Lynch's last record "Tribute To The Trumpet Masters" received rave reviews and adding another internationally known musician to the Cellar Live roster was a chance that I didn't want to pass up. The neat thing about this record is that all the material heard here was specifically written and arranged for this session and Lynch was genuinely excited to play with this trio and so he should be. In my estimation it doesn't get any better than these guys. Turner has a truly unique touch on the fender rhodes, Lachance once again provides rock solid support and Bernie Arai continues to amaze. The record turned out fabulous and is yet another great addtions to the Cellar Live catalog!
