Based in Sweden, The Real Group was formed in 1984. The quintet has collaborated with symphony orchestras, jazz groups and various pop groups around the globe.

The Real Group’s goal is to spread the “real spirit” and inspire singers and musicians everywhere. The group has released 20 CDs and has performed at many events, including the World Cup.

Grammy Award-winning artist Brian Lynch recorded his first album in 1986. He grew up in Milwaukee, Wis., and studied trumpet at the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music.

In 2007, Lynch won a Grammy for the Best Latin Jazz Album of the Year for his album, “The Brian Lynch/Eddie Palmieri Recording Project - Simpatico.”

“Lynch demonstrates that a dedicated, knowledgeable jazzman can play a diversity of styles with telling authenticity, and make the renditions extremely appealing to both musician and neophytes,” wrote Zan Stewart of Downbeat magazine. “Lynch is first-rate.”
