CHRIS DINGMAN TRIO
Chris Dingman, vibraphone; Linda Oh, bass; Kenny Wolleson, drums
Chris Dingman is among the most celebrated composers and vibraphonists of his generation. Hailed by the New York Times as a “dazzling” soloist and composer with a “fondness for airtight logic and burnished lyricism,” his progressive approach has earned him praise as “an extremely gifted young composer, bandleader, recording artist, and much sought-after sideman” (Jon Weber, NPR). In this exclusive performance he unveils new compositions for trio exploring sonic and textural possibilities of the vibraphone, featuring an impeccable rhythm section.
