“Lynne Arriale’s music lies at the synaptic intersection where brain meets heart, where body meets soul. She is one of jazzdom’s most intensely unique voices.” —JazzTimes
Lynne Arriale brings her trio to Zinc for a splendid evening of jazz piano on Friday, March 22. She’s supported by bassist Orlando le Fleming and drummer Carl Allen.
Pianist/composer Lynne Arriale’s career is graced by a love of melody and a joy of musical discovery. Arriale has performed on international concert and festival stages over the past 25 years. The consummate storyteller, she immediately connects with her listeners. JazzTimes wrote, “She achieves a special, deep connection with her audience, and the energy flows both ways. Arriale’s emotional authenticity allows her audience to feel and think along with her.”
Arriale was the first prize winner of the 1993 Great American Jazz Piano Competition and soon launched her touring and recording career. Her 14 albums as a leader have received wide critical claim and have topped the Jazzweek Radio Charts and annual “Best Of “ lists including The New Yorker, UPI, JAZZIZ, and JazzTimes.
She toured Japan as part of the 100 Golden Fingers Tour with iconic jazz pianists Tommy Flanagan, Hank Jones, Monty Alexander, Cedar Walton, Kenny Barron, Harold Mabern, Roger Kellaway, Junior Mance, and Ray Bryant. Arriale has performed and/or recorded with jazz greats Randy Brecker, George Mraz, Benny Golson, Rufus Reid, Larry Coryell, and Marian McPartland to name a few.
Lynne continues to tour internationally and recently released “Give Us These Days”, her 14th CD as a leader, on Challenge Records.
At the core of Arriale’s appeal is her ability to communicate with her band and listeners. She has been called “The poet laureate of her generation” by Jazz Police and has been consistently praised as having a singular voice as a pianist, leader, composer, and arranger. “I really can’t compare her to anyone,” said recent collaborator and multi-Grammy winner Randy Brecker. “Her music transcends the word ‘jazz’ – it is just pure music.”
