You know what still goes hard? Bassist Linda Oh's 2013 album Sun Pictures. It's an album that just doesn't quit and is as awesome a listen now as when it realese years ago. It comes to mind from time to time andn came o mind recently, particularly since Oh brought this video up of her performing at last year's Winter Jazz Fest which is particularly apt considering this year's festival starts tonight with Oh playing with various groups this week led by the likes of Ibrahim Maalouf, Fabian Almazan, Camila Meza and Sharel Cassity. In the meantime, take a walk down memory lane after the jump.
Malaysian born bass player and composer Linda Oh's second release as a leader is coming out very soon, on the 22nd of May, on Greenleaf Music. The quartet is composed of acclaimed sidemen, including Dayna Stephens on saxophone, extremely versatile drummer Rudy Royston and Fabian Almazan on keys. The group works audibly harmoniously well, in terms of dynamics and feel. Vocalist Jen Shyu contributes a deeply melodic lead to the fifth track, "Thicker than Water".
