About Jason Lindner
Brooklyn native Jason Lindner has been one of the most active contributors to the New York jazz scene with a weekly Monday night gig at Smalls in the West Village. Lindner also continues to perform and record with bassists Avishai Cohen, Omer Avital, vocalist Claudia Acuña, and more recently, the great drummer Roy Haynes. The Jason Lindner Ensembles 2000 album, Premonition, is available on Stretch Records.
. . . Lindner made each section rumble and erupt like a volcano. It was easily one of the most exhilarating live performances I've heard all year. . . -- K. Leander Williams, TimeOut New York
Premonition could very well be the beginnings of one of the most impressive big bands to emerge in years. -- John Murphy, JazzTimes
About Asheru of the Unspoken Heard
Since 1996, The Unspoken Heard is about expressing the duality of life and the black cultural experience, while simultaneously making heads nod, necks snap, and asses wiggle on the dance floor. From the mid-Atlantic and The Bronx, but neither confined nor defined by those geographical locations, their very name alludes to the intangible threads connecting those of like minds the world over.
Through two 12" releases, Blue Black's "Sun Up From Sun Down" in 1996, and 1998's "Better" b/w "Smiley," with Asheru, as well as two EP's, 1997's "Cosmology", and 1999's "Jamboree", they've stayed afloat in hip-hop's choppy and unsteady waters with jazz infused, thought provoking pieces. --7 Heads Recordings
