Chris Dingman Sextet

by

If you believe that ballads deserve the same taut interplay as uptempo tunes, you’re likely down with vibraphonist Dingman, whose new Waking Dreams is a suite of reflections that rebuffs somnambulance with inventive exchange after inventive exchange. Dingman’s sextet features red-hot trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire, who loves him some tension and release, but the real hero may be drummer Justin Brown. He never stops strategizing ways to turn a floating suggestion into a charging statement.
