Linda Oh plays the bass. Acoustic and electric, in trios, quartets, quintets, and sextets led by some of the best musicians in contemporary jazz. She’s 31, was born in Malaysia and raised in Australia, is of Chinese descent, and has lived in New York City, still the epicenter of jazz, for the past twelve years. In that time, through hard work, pluck (sorry), and great skill, her reputation has steadily grown, and she’s quietly become a star in jazz circles. She has sat in on countless recording sessions, gigs all around town at venues small — where they pass around a tin can — and large, and increasingly tours the country and the world. Linda Oh is a sideman, or rather, a sidewoman. She is, you might say, almost famous. Like many sidemen, Oh is also an aspiring bandleader. But if jazz is a notoriously tough sell, bass players are even tougher. Essential as the instrument is to time and rhythm, and as voluptuous its presence on the bandstand, it often fades … [Read more...] about Almost Famous, Almost Broke: How Does a Jazz Musician Make It in New York Now?

Looks from Aeron’s Spring/Summer collection, 2018. Aeron Just before the first weekend of Coachella began, the Budapest-based fashion line Nanushka opened an L.A. pop-up shop that attracted almost every major fashion blogger under the sun. A few weeks prior, The New York Times published a “48 Hours in Budapest” article. At the same time, Hungarian ingredients seem to be manifesting in beauty brands that couldn’t be less related—Peter Thomas Roth and Belif have both recently released products that claim to use Hungarian Thermal Water at Sephora.Considering fashion’s recent obsession with Eastern Europe, it’s not too much of a surprise that Budapest is developing itself as the next big exporter of must-have designs.

It certainly hadn’t happened in London or New York, where indoor houses relied on stage effects. The Muny’s helicopter took off from Forest Park’s Cricket Field, made its way over the stage and flew on to land in Cahokia. Greg Friedrichsen, of KTVI’s “Sky Fox,” was the pilot. Two years later, the Muny concocted a similarly impressive moment for “South Pacific,” which opened with avintage B-25 roaring over the audience.“When you’re at the biggest outdoor theater in America,” I wrote in my review at the time, “the possibilities tend to widen.”Around the start of the new millennium, the Muny seemed pretty stable. Headed by executive producer Paul Blake and chief executive officer … [Read more...] about Muny at 100: In a new millennium, theater tries new things onstage — and in the air
