Tuesday, August 27th sees the release of a new album by bassist Linda Oh on our Greenleaf label. To celebrate, Linda brings a quartet to Jazz Standard NYC for two sets. RSVP to the event at Facebook.
“…another solid step in the evolution of Linda Oh, and suggests that there’s still much more creative music coming from her.”
Preorder Sun Pictures at Bandcamp (GLM) or iTunes
We’re happy to announce the preorder of Linda Oh’s “Sun Pictures”—her 3rd album as a leader, and her 2nd for our label. This is a dynamite band featuring Greenleaf alum Ben Wendel of Kneebody, Aussie guitarist James Muller, and drummer Ted Poor. And Linda’s writing for this crew is stronger than ever.
Preorder Sun Pictures at GLM (Bandcamp) & iTunes.
The title of the album comes from the world’s oldest operating outdoor cinema located in Broome, Australia where Linda’s sister lives. That imagery and concept are central to the feel of these tunes—Linda describes each piece as a “snapshot from recent travels and experiences playing music.” And busy she’s been, playing with Dave Douglas’ Quintet, Sound Prints Quintet with Dave and Joe Lovano, and countless other projects the helped shape these tunes.
But enough from us, we’ll let Linda fill you in.
We’re excited to announce and share with you new Linda Oh music. “Sun Pictures” is her second for Greenleaf after last year’s “Initial Here“. Linda has been busy since that release playing in Dave’s Quintet, the Sound Prints Quintet with Dave and Joe Lovano, and a boatload of other projects. And it’s from those travels and experiences that “Sun Pictures” came into focus — Linda calls the album “a set of musical postcards.”
We have the CDs printing at the plant — a beautiful package with great photos, liner notes by Linda, all printed on recycled paper (you know how we roll) — and we expect them in any day now. Preorder in advance of the August 27th street date coming very soon. In the meantime, watch this great band (Ben Wendel of Kneebody, James Muller, Linda Oh, and Ted Poor) recording the album live at WKCR Studios at Columbia University.
It’s our esteemed privilege to bring a new Dave Douglas album into the world yet again. And he’s outdone himself on this one—as he always does!
