(Time Zone: US/Eastern)

Location: Rendall Memorial Presbyterian Church 

Born in Malaysia and raised in Perth, Western Australia, Linda started classical piano at age four and took up clarinet at eleven and bassoon at thirteen. At fifteen, Linda dabbled on electric bass, playing jazz in the high school and community big bands. She was accepted into the W.A Academy of Performing Arts and started taking lessons on double bass. She is a recipient of the ASCAP Young Jazz Composers Award, received an honorary mention at the 2009 Thelonious Monk Semi-Finals and received the 2010 Bell Award for Young Australian Jazz Artist of the Year. Linda has performed with Steve Wilson, Kenny Barron, Dave Douglas, Kevin Hayes and Cyrus Chestnut in addition to releasing two albums as a leader. Linda is also working on a string quartet concept “Concert in the Dark” where the musicians play with specific movements throughout the audience with very minimal lighting to enhance the listening experience and create a spatial surround sound effect.

Linda Oh Trio-Entry [Linda Oh Music]

Linda Oh, born in Malaysia, raised in Australia, and currently living in New York, is a 25-year-old acoustic bassist with remarkable gifts. Entry, her debut, is a resounding statement of this fact, demonstrating conceptual maturity and prodigious instrumental strength. The trio setting suits her, as do her sidemen, trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire and drummer Obed Calvaire. In this intimate ensemble, Oh reveals a conversational compositional voice and a finely tuned brand of collective improvisation that is spontaneous, but never muddled.
