The Jazz Session #509: Chris Dingman

Vibraphonist Chris Dingman‘s new album, Embrace, comes out on March 6, 2020. In this interview, which includes previews of some of the music from the album, Dingman talks about his decision to record in a trio format with Linda May Han Oh and Tim Keiper; how he uses meditation to help navigate his musical and personal paths; confronting the loss of his father during the making of the album; and his future projects.
