Zing! Zing!

ZING! was originally formed for a one time performance on May 22nd, 2006 celebrating the birthday of one of the band members. After this first performance it was a mutual understanding that this Chicago-based group of musicians would soon become a new group. ZING! draws on the traditions of both acoustic improvised music, electronica and ambient music, with members contributing personal musical identities and backgrounds including a wide range of musical styles.

Although all members of ZING! are steeped in the jazz tradition, all have ventured into other musical dimensions through study and performance with groups playing latin, rock, funk, drum ‘n bass, free jazz, classical, punk and many other styles of music. In live performance, this musical collective balances wholly improvised pieces with pre-composed ones, always freshly approaching the music.

ZING!’s distinctive “improv-meets-rock-meets-jazz” sound is produced with all members experimenting with their natural acoustic sounds and the employment of pedals and electronics of various kinds. If you can’t catch up with ZING! at one of its live performances, you can also check out sounds of the band on the 2007 release on ears&eyes Records, “Magnetic Flux.” (available Summer 2007)

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
