Jason Lindner & Super Future Griot @ SOUNDWAVES
A community summer concert series on the shores of Lake Champlain
At Ballard Park, Westport, NY
Thursday, August 21 at 7:30 pm

Soundwaves is pleased to present Jason Lindner & Super Future Griot on August 21st as part of the Westport Community Concert Series at Ballard Park.

Jason Lindner’s newest project featuring Gilmar Gomes (percussion – Richard Bona, Angelique Kidjo) and Nate Smith (drums – Dave Holland, Chris Potter) links ritualistic musical folklore with future sonic edge.

“Rhythm provides more than a heartbeat for Jason Lindner. It also seems to fuel his respiratory functions and digestive activity, and maybe his neurons…What matters to him is groove, however it comes.” – The New York Times

“…an open-minded kid from Brooklyn became one of jazz’s most interesting keyboardists, with an identity spanning genres, cultures, formats and technologies.” – JazzTimes

The 2014 summer series continues at 7:30 every Thursday night through August 28th on the hillside amphitheater overlooking Lake Champlain, known as the Ballard Park Performance Pavilion. Bring a blanket/lawn chairs and a picnic. The rain site is across Main Street/Route 22 in the acoustically amazing historic chapel of the Westport Heritage House.
