He is also involved with the San Jose Jazz and is the director of the San Jose High School All Stars band. And he is also a member of San Francisco bay area’s Grammy winning group Pacific Mambo Orchestra and performs with them around the San Francisco bay area on a regular basis.
We sat down to talk with Dr. Lington to find out how he developed an interest in music and majored in it and went to do a PhD in it. He has been teaching at SJSU for over 10 years, and finds time from his busy schedule to arrange and compose music and play music with local bands in the bay area.
