With the bass, “you have a lot more power than you may think,” Linda Oh says.

Since discovering the double bass, Oh become a steady presence on the scene, whether playing with a string quartet, composing for film or covering the Red Hot Chili Peppers, which she does here with “Soul to Squeeze” in a set with host Jon Weber.

Linda Oh currently lives in New York, where she completed her Masters at the Manhattan School of Music, and teaches bass in its pre-college division. She performs in venues throughout the city and also composes music for film. Her latest album is Initial Here.
