Lynne Arriale released her 14th CD as a leader May 15, 2018 with her debut on Challenge Records. "Give Us These Days," was recorded in the Netherlands and features renowned Dutch musicians, bassist Jasper Somsen and drummer, Jasper van Hulten, with a cameo performance from special guest vocalist, Kate McGarry.

“Give Us These Days,” is ambitious both in its conception and its unbridled sense of wonder.  Evolved from the creative genius that foretold her reputation as an extraordinary piano poet and composer, the six originals and three arrangements on this CD lead, ever so gently, to the chambers of the heart, there to reflect upon the precious and ephemeral nature of existence.  What emerges is the theme of this record, brilliantly illuminated by the title track.

Arriale’s playing throughout this record is powerful; informed by rigorous classical training, prodigious technique, and seemingly boundless creativity. Her music exhibits a purity, unfettered by ego, and is lifted by a palpable sense of spiritual equanimity.

"The poet laureate of her generation" (Jazz Police), Arriale’s performances and recordings with her trio have been consistently praised as having a "singular voice" as a pianist, leader, composer, and arranger. 

The world's great jazz festivals and concert stages have invited Lynne to perform, including five performances at the Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, Montreux, Burghausen, Gilmore, Spoleto Arts, Montreal, Monterey, North Sea, Stuttgart, Pori, San Francisco, Ottawa, Zagreb, Perth, Brisbane, Rouen, Cannes MIDEM, Sardinia, Rochester, Wigan, Poznan, Estoril, Palermo, Inverness, Cork and San Javier. 

Her 14 CDs as a leader have topped the Jazzweek Radio Charts; and were included on numerous "Best Of" lists, including The New Yorker, United Press International, JAZZIZ and JazzTimes.

With a style that is vibrant and hard-driving, yet lyrical and intimate, the Lynne Arriale Quartet provides an exhilarating musical experience that touches hearts and minds. Long admired for her piano trio magic, leading her quartet has launched Lynne on a high-arcing trajectory with her stunning originals and reimagined covers, combining world music inspirations including Celtic, Americana, Middle-Eastern, and Balkan, as well as pop and rock influences.
