Lincoln Adler

Introduction

In a time when many artists’ truest musical hearts are sacrificed to the notion of “mainstream success at all costs,” Lincoln Adler has made the bold decision to return to his roots. Jazz fans in his hometown of Berkeley, California and throughout the country best know the saxophonist for his longtime association with Times 4, as well as the band Rain-bo Tribe and his well-received mid-90s solo albums “The Dream” and “Short Stories.” But those recordings only tell part of Adler’s story, as his vibrant release “Are You In There?” reveals. Blending such diverse jazz influences as Stanley Turrentine, Dexter Gordon, Johnny Griffin, Eddie Harris, and Joe Henderson with his melodic, groove intensive leanings towards funk bands like Parliament and Earth, Wind & Fire, Adler creates a sly mix of straight ahead, blues, latin, retro-soul and world beat sounds.
