Jason Lindner is a name you should become familiar with. The keyboard/pianist is incredibly expressive and experimental with his playing, notably earning him a spot in the band that played on David Bowie’s final album. On September 7th, another player from that album, Donny McCaslin, will join Lindner in Oscillations, a project that explores the nexus of jazz and electronica.
If you’ve been following the blog this year, or my recent foray into show bookings via Tango Presents, you’ll see that the jazz/electronica thing is quite intriguing to me. It’s amazing to watch musicians who occupy a mindset of in-the-moment playing experiment with the same boundary-pushing soundscapes that dominate electronic music.
Taking place at the Good Room in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, Oscillations is sure to bring a live, one-of-a-kind set to a club that houses some of the world’s best DJ talent.
