Now VS Now
NOW VS NOW = 3 friends who dare to inspire, challenge and push themselves and their music beyond reasonable limits.
“Now vs. Now forges into altogether undeveloped musical terrain...I'm not sure I want to describe the music as much as I want to invite people to listen to it...the sound of now.” –NPR
“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.” -New York Times
The exploratory electro-groove trio by keyboardist/composer JASON LINDNER (Me’shell Ndegeocello, Lauryn Hill, Roy Haynes) features IDM-influenced drummer MARK GUILIANA (Heernt, Beat Music, “...at the forefront of an exciting new style of drumming.” –Modern Drummer Magazine) and bassist PANAGIOTIS ANDREOU (Yerba Buena, Pedrito Martinez). They have been compared with the great instrumental groups such as Soft Machine and Mahavishnu Orchestra.
Their debut album JASON LINDNER gives you NOW VS NOW, produced by longtime fan and collaborator Meshell Ndegeocello and mixed by Bob Power (Q-Tip, Roots), is steeped in Guiliana’s hard grooves, Lindner’s ambient soundscapes, and bassist Andreou’s subby, syncopated bass lines and Balkan Gypsy-style vocal work.
