Piano – Jazz Institute, Advanced Package
supremely talented pianist and synthesist, Jason Lindner has appeared at the Stanford Jazz Festival with Donny McCaslin and Anat Cohen, and joins the faculty this summer for the first time. Jason’s is a singular talent, combining a deep mastery of jazz piano and jazz traditions with a sonic adventurousness enabled by his passion for synthesis and sound design. One of his most notable recent recordings was as a member of the late David Bowie’s Blackstar band, for of which producer Tony Visconti referred to Jason as a “Godsend.” Chick Corea has said that Jason is a “musical universe” all to himself. Collaborator Meshell Ndegeocello used to tell Jason to “fly your spaceship!” Currently he performs with his own cyber-wave band Now vs. Now, Donny McCaslin, Angelique Kidjo, Mark Guiliana, Mulatu Astatke, and many other creative artists.
