Fiona's Comments

What better way to celebrate jazz on International Jazz Day, the next generation has arrived.

About the Album

What one hears frequently when talking about the young Mr. Goldberg, is, “he plays sooo great . . . for any age! . . .”. In fact Wendy Oxenhorn (head of the Jazz Foundation of America) stated that, “Brandon’s phrasing and his bigger-than-life -genius makes it hard to believe he is only 13. When he was 10 and performed at our Apollo concert, I went on stage after and asked to see his drivers license because after hearing him play and speak, I thought he had to be 44! Brandon is an old soul who will keep this music alive in the new world.” And, the legendary pianist Monty Alexander added emphatically that, “this is a masterful performance for this twelve year old, and not because he’s a twelve year old but because he’s Brandon. Along with all of the cleverness, the sophistication and the tasteful choices, this young man is swinging—swinging hard. Brandon is as affecting as any other new artists appearing on the scene today. I am a fan.”
