Chris Dingman is a vibraphonist and composer known for his sonically rich and expansive approach to the instrument, bringing listeners on a journey to a beautiful, transcendent place merging jazz and global influences. This music has a healing property so needed in these difficult times. Dingman has been profiled by NPR, The New York Times, DRUM magazine and many other publications, and has received fellowships and grants from the Chamber Music America, the Doris Duke Foundation, New Music USA, and the Herbie Hancock Institute (formerly the Thelonious Monk Institute).
Dingman has done significant work with legendary artists Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter as well as next-generation visionaries such as Jen Shyu, Ambrose Akinmusire, Steve Lehman, and many others, performing around the world including India, Vietnam, and extensively in Europe and North America. Hailed by The New York Times as a “dazzling” soloist and a composer with a “fondness for airtight logic and burnished lyricism,” the fluidity of his musical approach has earned him praise as “an extremely gifted composer, bandleader, and recording artist.” (Jon Weber, NPR). Chris is joined by stellar Miami artists Carlo DeRosa on bass and Rodolfo Zuniga on drums.
