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.
