Weeklong engagement at the Village Vanguard, NYC
With bassist Linda Oh, tenor saxophonists Ben Wendel and Dayna Stephens, pianist Fabian Almazan, and drummer Justin Brown
Born in Malaysia, raised in Western Australia, and currently residing in New York City, Linda Oh blends her many influences into an original musical voice as a composer and bassist. In addition to playing in the groups of artists like Dave Douglas, Joe Lovano, and Pascal Le Boeuf, Oh has released three critically acclaimed albums that highlight her unique and rapidly developing compositional voice. Each piece is meticulously arranged, restrained, and evolves through subtle changes, ensuring that every detail counts and that band members get plenty of room for individual expression within the tight structure. The result is a gripping collection of music that highlights the band’s individual talents and builds a constant sense of anticipation over what surprise will come next.
