Performer's Website

Composer/bassist John Lindberg embarked on his professional career in 1975 at the age of sixteen, after having attended the Creative Music Studio in Woodstock, N.Y., where he had pursued private contrabass studies with Dr. David Izenzon and Dave Holland.

He consequently immersed himself in performing music that covered a wide diversity of genres, in equally diverse venues.

The following year he settled in New York City and co-founded the String Trio of New York, a composers collective performance unit that has gone on to produce seventeen albums of original music and present hundreds of concerts worldwide. The trio celebrates its 31sth anniversary season during the 2008/09 season.
In 1979 he formed his first ensemble dedicated to the performance of his own compositions, and since has recorded forty-eight albums that feature his works.

His ensembles and duo collaborations have performed hundreds of concerts throughout Europe, North and South America, East Asia and the Middle East.

As a bassist he has appeared on over seventy-five albums, including landmark recordings with Anthony Braxton, Jimmy Lyons, Steve Lacy, Albert Mangelsdorff, Tony Coe, and Wadada Leo Smith, among others.

Currently he is active as a solo contrabassist, composing for, performing and recording with varied ensemble projects, and with the String Trio of New York.
