New York-based bassist Linda May Han Oh is one of the most respected double bassists of the younger generation. Pat Metheny, Kenny Barron, Joe Lovano and Dave Douglas are a handful of jazz icons who played with the fluently melodic Malaysian-born, Australian-raised bassist.
With six albums of her own, Linda May Han Oh creates intelligent and playful music that plucks ideas from all currents of jazz from folk, modal and free jazz. Her latest album, The Glass Hours, came in 2023, the same year that she, together with drummer Terri Lyne Carrington, among others, won a Grammy for best jazz album with New Standards Vol. 1.
This is how The Wall Street Journal writes: “her innovative range and stellar improvisations have made [her] one of the most dynamic rising stars in jazz today.”
Linda May Han Oh is a teacher at the New School – School of Jazz in New York and a professor at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. She has created a series of lessons for the BassGuru app and has written for both large and small ensembles. Linda is the bass player in Pat Metheny’s quartet with whom she visited Sweden in 2017. The following year she was at Fasching with her own ensemble.
