Jason Lindner & Super Future Griot @ SOUNDWAVES
A community summer concert series on the shores of Lake Champlain
At Ballard Park, Westport, NY
Thursday, August 21 at 7:30 pm
Soundwaves is pleased to present Jason Lindner & Super Future Griot on August 21st as part of the Westport Community Concert Series at Ballard Park.
Jason Lindner’s newest project featuring Gilmar Gomes (percussion – Richard Bona, Angelique Kidjo) and Nate Smith (drums – Dave Holland, Chris Potter) links ritualistic musical folklore with future sonic edge.
“Rhythm provides more than a heartbeat for Jason Lindner. It also seems to fuel his respiratory functions and digestive activity, and maybe his neurons…What matters to him is groove, however it comes.” – The New York Times
“…an open-minded kid from Brooklyn became one of jazz’s most interesting keyboardists, with an identity spanning genres, cultures, formats and technologies.” – JazzTimes
Jazz Journalists Association’s 2014 Electronics Player of the Year Award-winner Jason Lindner’s musical journey knows no limits. The formidable improviser and composer brings a uniquely open and refreshing approach to all of his musical endeavors. Whether fronting his electric trio, Now Vs Now, directing his widely acclaimed big band, or collaborating with many of the world’s finest musicians, Lindner is sound without borders. Praised by Chick Corea as a ‘musical universe,’ he writes, performs, arranges, and produces for an ever-growing roster of creative beings.
The 2014 summer series continues at 7:30 every Thursday night through August 28th on the hillside amphitheater overlooking Lake Champlain, known as the Ballard Park Performance Pavilion. Bring a blanket/lawn chairs and a picnic. The rain site is across Main Street/Route 22 in the acoustically amazing historic chapel of the Westport Heritage House.
