Pianist Jason Lindner made his mark during the 1990s at a young age, primarily leading his inventive big band on a regular Monday night gig at New York's storied Smalls club. He has also performed and recorded with bassist Avishai Cohen. His penchant for Latin music made him particularly suited to play on and write arrangements for Claudia Acuña's acclaimed debut, Wind From the South. Lindner's big band was featured on the 1998 compilation Jazz Underground: Live at Smalls. The band's own full-length album, Premonition, followed in 2000.
