Linda Oh, Kassa Overall and Jonathan Batiste
Parallax: noun- The effect whereby the position or direction of an object appears to differ when viewed from different positions.
For the 6th installment of our new conversation series we were honored to have the exciting and innovative bassist, Linda Oh, contemporary polymath (rapper, producer, drummer, singer) Kassa Overall and our very own Artistic-Director-At-Large Jonathan Batiste for an evening of talking, playing, free-styling, debating, asking, answering and who knows what else! Combined, these talented musicians have performed with the likes of Steve Wilson, Geri Allen, Kenny Barron, Vijay Iyer, Das Racist, Ambrose Akinmusire, Chad Smith, Christian McBride and more. They riffed on Charlie Parker and his influence on their music and some sparks definitely flew!
