“One of the most exciting pianists in contemporary jazz” (The Guardian- UK), pianist/composer, Lynne Arriale, has performed on international concertstages over the past 25 years. Jazz Police called her "the poet laureate of her generation". She has touched the hearts and inspired the imaginationsof audiences worldwide and has been consistently praised as having a "singular voice" as a pianist, bandleader and composer. “Lynne Arriale's musiclies at the synaptic intersection where brain meets heart, where body meets soul. She achieves a special, deep connection with her audience, and theenergy flows both ways. Arriale's emotional authenticity allows her audience to feel and think along with her...She is one of jazzdom's most intenselyunique voices.” JazzTimes“Chimes of Freedom”, Lynne Arriale’s 15th album as a leader, was recorded in Europe for release by Challenge Records International. Lynne is joinedby renowned musicians, Dutch bassist/co-producer Jasper Somsen, drummer, E.J. Strickland, and guest vocalist, K.J. Denhert. In “Chimes”, her mostpassionate artistic statement to date, Lynne reflects on freedom, cultural diversity, and her wish that all refugee families may reach an inclusive safeharbor among the democratic nations of the world. This remarkable collection features seven of Lynne’s original, deeply personal works. Thespiritual,”Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child”, together with Lynne’s evocative “Journey”, “The Dreamers”, “3 Million Steps”, “Hope”, “The WholeTruth” and “Lady Liberty” weave a dramatic narrative, crowned by the trio’s collaboration with K.J. Denhert singing Bob Dylan’s “Chimes of Freedom”and Paul Simon’s “American Tune”. “Chimes” is a worthy and timely successor to Lynne’s critically acclaimed “Give Us These Days”; athematically-related suite that considers the transient nature of human existence.Lynne is known throughout the jazz world for the clarity, honesty and lyricism of her melodic lines, her virtuoso technique, and her genius for creating asynergistic environment around the trio, whose sound is greater than the sum of its parts.Her albums have topped the Jazzweek US Radio Charts and have been on numerous "Best Of" lists including The New Yorker, United PressInternational, JAZZIZ, JazzTimes and Jazz History Online.
