Linda Oh Trio @ Rubin Museum 3/2/12

Oh Linda, you know how to put a band together and compose!  There's something very cool about bass led jazz ensembles.  Of course the bass is always interesting and the drummer is always phenomenal.  I love that she chose a trumpet as the 3rd.  What an amazing trumpet he is!  I haven't seen much of him, but I do have to look out for him in the future.

Her compositions are phenomenal.  She has one that's a tribute to a Guns and Roses song.  She wrote something new inspired by one of the Modern Indian paintings in the museum.  They ended the 75-90 minute set with a Red Hot Chilly Peppers tune.  How cool is that?!!

All solos kicked butt.  Everyone had great parts to play the whole show.
