Linda May Han Oh Quartet ft. special guest Tineke Postma

Renowned bassist from New York presents compositions from her album The Glass Hours.

From rock solid accompaniment on double bass to elastic electric bass lines: Linda May Han Oh has mastered it, and always seems to become one with her instrument on stage. On top of that she is an excellent composer of tunes that seem ‘simple and clear, many with folk-like melodies, but are actually complex constructions involving intricate overlays of different densities and activity, sometimes coming into phase, sometimes gently straying apart’, according to Downbeat.

Her new album The Glass Hours is a collection of works based on abstract themes of the fragility of time and life. Vocalist Sara Serpa plays an important role on the album. She will perform here in the band alongside pianist Fabian Almazan, who released The Glass Hours on his label Biophilia Records. Linda May Han Oh is in high demand as a bassist and is known for playing in the Pat Metheny Group, as well as with American jazz greats such as Mark Turner, Dave Douglas en Joe Lovano.
