These are videos that I like: Chris Dingman – “Clear the Rain”


chrisdingman_wakingdreamsToday’s featured video is from vibraphonist Chris Dingman, live at the Firehouse 12, performing the song “Clear the Rain” from his 2012 release Waking Dreams.

This performance occurred back in 2010.  Apparently Dingman has been performing new pieces live, and the word is that there might be a new album forthcoming in 2015.  If true, that’s great news.  His previous album, Waking Dreams, was one of 2011’s best.  Read more on this site (LINK).

Your video personnel:  Chris Dingman (vibraphone), Loren Stillman (alto sax), Fabian Almazan (piano), Aidan Carroll (bass) and Eric McPherson (drums).


And don’t forget to check out more of the music he’s contributed to.  There’s eight different mentions of him on Bird is the Worm, and probably a few more from my eMusic/Wondering Sound Jazz Picks column that just didn’t get written up here.  Dingman will lead you to some great music.

Have a great day!
