Groove. If it’s jazz, funk, Latin, vocal standards, or any other style, versatile bassist Lyman Medeiros always brings his unique and strong sense of groove to any performance. If he is leading his own group or acting as a sideman with such renowned artists as Steve Tyrell or Michael Buble his groove remains constant. Lyman was raised in Honolulu, Hawaii and Indianapolis, Indiana to parents with Portuguese, Polynesian, and Irish heritage. He picked up his first electric bass at age thirteen and began studying the upright bass at eighteen. After seeing a dynamic concert by the Ray Brown Trio in 1994, Lyman discovered a passion for jazz that has driven his career.
