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. He earned a Bachelor of Music degree from Ball State University, Muncie, Indiana then continued his education at Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo, Michigan where he earned a Master of Music in 2000. Lyman flourished at Western. During his time there he earned Outstanding Student Performer awards from the Notre Dame Jazz Festival and Downbeat magazine. He also won the Arts Council of Greater Kalamazoo’s Emerging Artist Grant, and was awarded a full fellowship to attend the prestigious Henry Mancini Institute in Los Angeles, California during the summers of 1999 and 2000....
