The trio Now vs. Now is the brainchild of Jason Lindner, a piano and synthesizer whiz whose background is as much bebop as the many musical worlds of New York City. With vocalizing electric bassist Panagiotis Andreou and master beatsmith Mark Guiliana, Lindner has developed an electro-groove trio, an urban slang take on the jam. Now vs. Now has a 2009 record under its belt, and is about to make another one; its performances are full of knobs twiddled, otherworldly chants over bass breakdowns and snare drums crisply snapped.

Now vs. Now joined the band Third World Love on a double bill in downtown New York City, presented by The Checkout: Live concert series. The shows were broadcast on air via WBGO and in an online video webcast on NPR Music on April 26. For more information about this series and a full concert archive, visit npr.org/checkoutlive.
