In an arena that is overwhelmingly dominated by her male counterparts, bassist Linda May-Han Oh is going to be a force with which to be reckoned. Her auspicious self-produced debut, Entry (2009), was lauded by critics, and was one of pianist Vijay Iyer's top picks for 2009.

Her technical know-how is solidified by visceral, emotive and gutsy performance. Oh walks softly and lets her double-bass do the boasting, and does so impressively. With the buzz slowly getting out about her abilities and music, she's finding herself quite busy with numerous gigs and teaching opportunities in the U.S. and abroad, while finding the time to develop her own ideas.

All About Jazz Contributor Mark F. Turner spoke with Oh earlier this summer, about Entry, why she chose the unorthodox lineup of trumpet, bass and drums with two other up-and-comers—Ambrose Akinmusire and Obed Calvaire}}—and future plans that include combining a string quartet with a jazz quartet, strategically positioned around an audience, with minimal lighting to enhance the listening experience.
