With her debut CD, Entry, bassist/composer Linda Oh asserted herself as a unique new voice on the modern jazz scene. On her follow-up, Initial Here, Oh draws deeply upon her rich cultural heritage and broad range of inspirations to further define her musical autobiography.
“This album tells a story about identity. Cultural identity and musical identity. I wanted to go in a few different directions to explore some more extreme emotions.” —Linda Oh
