Chris Dingman


Performer's Website

Hailed by the New York Times as a "dazzling" soloist and composer with a "fondness for airtight logic and burnished lyricism," Chris Dingman is one of the most sought-after vibraphonists of his generation. Schooled in the jazz tradition, yet influenced by a wide range of music and experience, Dingman draws inspiration and meaning from a diverse set of musical sources, uniting them in a progressive approach that has earned him praise for his "poignant work" (David Sprague, Variety), his "adaptive humility" (Nate Chinen, NY Times), and as "downright hypnotic" (John Barron, All About Jazz). He has performed and studied with many of the world's greatest jazz musicians, including Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Benny Golson, Jimmy Heath, and many others. Now based in Brooklyn, NY, he is currently working with many of the leading lights on the jazz and creative music scene, both as a sideman and as a leader with his project Waking Dreams.
