ALBUM REVIEW

Jared Gold: Reemergence

Read "Reemergence" reviewed by C. Andrew Hovan

The title of organist Jared Gold's newest release seems to suggest that he is returning to the fold after being away for a time. In actuality, he has been a mainstay on the New York scene for some time now and can boast eight previous albums as a leader dating back to 2008's Solids and Stripes. More likely is that the title alludes to the fact that Gold's discography appears exclusively on the Posi-Tone label, an imprimatur known ...

Jared Gold: Metropolitan Rhythm

Read "Metropolitan Rhythm" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Jared Gold remains one of the most dependably creative artists in the Posi-Tone stable. He's delivered an album a year for that label since arriving with Solids & Stripes (Posi-Tone, 2008), a date that, in many respects, set the tone for the other trio and quartet sessions that would follow. Here, on his eighth release for that imprint, Gold delivers a well-balanced set with his working trio--a group that features guitar veteran Dave Stryker and rising star drummer Kush Abadey. ...

ALBUM REVIEW

Jared Gold: Intuition

Read "Intuition" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Intuition is organist Jared Gold's sixth outing for the Posi-Tone label in as many years. He walks a similar path on all of his prior dates for this imprint, extending the organ group tradition(s) while fronting trios and quartets and working his way through catchy originals and diverse covers, but no two albums are really the same. Part of the reason for this has to do with his personal growth as an artist, but the more significant factor surrounds the ...

ALBUM REVIEW

Jared Gold: Golden Child

Read "Golden Child" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

A string of enjoyable leader dates and some high profile work in guitarist Dave Stryker's organ-centric groups can be credited for the steady rise in organist Jared Gold's profile. His ability to live within the tradition while simultaneously building upon it has made him one to watch, and his constant and steady growth as a musician/composer has been evident from album to album. Golden Child, his fifth release for the Posi-Tone label since 2009, was actually recorded ...

Jared Gold: Golden Child

Read "Golden Child" reviewed by Mark F. Turner

Jazz organist Jared Gold continues to make his presence known, both in name and sonically. Energizing and free yet possessed of a comprehensive knowledge of the Hammond B3 organ, he communicates with the language of giants such as Don Patterson and Chris Foreman of the Deep Blue Organ Trio. It's been said that “either you have it or you don't," and Gold's playing bears the truth of the groove on Golden Child. On his fifth recording as a leader, Gold ...

ALBUM REVIEW

Jared Gold: All Wrapped Up

Read "All Wrapped Up" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Jared Gold's fourth album as leader, All Wrapped Up, finds fresh faces joining the organist as he releases his first recording without a guitarist. This is also Gold's first all-originals album--although he shares the writing credits with his band mates, who each contribute a tune. The new lineup and new tunes ensure that this album, and Gold's playing, sounds bright and upbeat from the off. All Wrapped Up is Gold's follow-up to 2010's relaxed, almost laidback Out Of ...

ALBUM REVIEW

Jared Gold: All Wrapped Up

Read "All Wrapped Up" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

There's a noticeable change in organist Jared Gold's sonic template of choice, before All Wrapped Up even begins. While two out of Gold's three prior releases were quartet outings that used saxophone as the lone horn voice, all three releases were rooted in the traditional organ trio instrumental format. A different guitarist graced each one of those records, with Randy Napoleon, Ed Cherry and Dave Stryker each putting their own unique stamp on Gold's music, but the organist clearly felt ...

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.
