Nice review of BC5 by WTJU, NPR station in Richmond, VA.

Paul Tynan & Aaron Lington – Bicoastal Collective: Chapter Five (OA2): Paul Tynan (composer/trumpet/flugelhorn) and Aaron Ligton (composer/bari sax) each composed half of the numbers on this disc specifically for the Bicoastal Collective, a powerhouse big band featuring, in addition to the composers, Bobby Selvaggio (soprano, alto sax, alto  clarinet, flute); Steve Jones (alto sax, clarinet); Dave Down (tenor sax flute); Marcus Wolfe (tenor sax, bass clarinet); Paul Compton, Carl Lundgren and Alex Dubrov (trombones); Josh Brown (bass trombone); Jason Levi, Ken Edwards, Daniel Matthews and Micah Bell (trumpet, flugelhorn); Noel Johnston (guitars); Josh Hanlon (piano); Mike Luzecky (bass); and Stockton Helbing (drums). The compositions are straight ahead and often driving. There is a nice variety of styles, which really makes this disc stand out.
