Aaron Goldberg: At The Edge Of The World

Read "At The Edge Of The World" reviewed by Glenn Astarita


One interesting aspect of this recording relates to eminent pianist Aaron Goldberg (Kurt Rosenwinkel, Joshua Redman) reuniting with cutting-edge drummer, Leon Parker in Paris. Back in the 1990s, the artists' connected for a gig, but Goldberg was initially indoctrinated to the drummer's performances with pianists, Jacky Terrasson, Brad Mehldau and other notables. But as the press release notes, Parker moved to France in 2001 and took a self-imposed sabbatical from playing. At the peak of his notoriety, he dropped out ...

Aaron Goldberg Trio at @exuberance

Read "Aaron Goldberg Trio at @exuberance" reviewed by Geno Thackara


Aaron Goldberg Trio @exuberance jny: Philadelphia, PA November 23, 2018 It was a rollicking evening set full of jaunty rhythms and good humor. Aaron Goldberg clearly relished the rich sound of the Steinway and the feel of the room. A packed crowd had come out to unwind at the end of Black Friday--probably the fullest audience this two-year-old concert series has had to date--and the affair felt like the friendliest informal holiday ...

Aaron Goldberg / Ali Jackson Jr. / Omer Avital: Yes!

Read "Yes!" reviewed by Raul d'Gama Rose


The strains of wistful longing are almost palpable right through the length and breadth of Yes!, a remarkable album by a remarkable trio. Pianist Aaron Goldberg, bassist Omer Avital and drummer Ali Jackson Jr. play with such empathy that they appear of one mind, body and soul. This is the stuff that significant music has been made of for decades, which is why this trio sounds as if it were raising the ghost of those of the great Ahmad Jamal. ...

Aaron Goldberg and Guillermo Klein: Bienestan

Read "Bienestan" reviewed by Raul d'Gama Rose


There might actually have been a universe called “Bienestan" and it may have existed for as long as Guillermo Klein. The rich sonic topography of this undiscovered place is just emerging. It is a place of oceans of sound, with energetic waves that make their rhythmic way to lap upon a shore that glistens with all manner of richly harmonized melodies. The very air on this universe is thick with reports of complex rhythms bounced across many interstellar regions from ...

The Aaron Goldberg Quartet At The Village Vanguard

Read "The Aaron Goldberg Quartet At The Village Vanguard" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


Aaron Goldberg QuartetVillage VanguardNew York, NYFebruary 3, 2011 Neither rain, nor sleet, nor gloom of night could keep pianist Aaron Goldberg from his appointed rounds at the Village Vanguard. While Goldberg's opening night met with all of the aforementioned conditions, and a few other treats that the weather gods saw fit to bring down upon the people, things had settled down by the third evening of the engagement and his augmented trio was in ...
