AARON GOLDBERG TRIO (USA)
Hailed by Down Beat magazine for his “quick-witted harmonic reflexes, fluid command of line and cut-to-the- chase sense of narrative logic,” Aaron Goldberg has made his name as one of jazz’s most compelling pianists, both as a bandleader and frequent collaborator with Joshua Redman, Wynton Marsalis, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Guillermo Klein and many more. On his current release "The Now", Goldberg reunites with bassist Reuben Rogers and drummer Eric Harland, the virtuoso rhythm team going all the way back to his 1998 debut Turning Point. On their fifth outing together, the trio foregrounds a central truth about the art of playing jazz: that no two performances will be the same because the music is created, in Goldberg’s words, “in the dynamic plane of the present.”
"A post-bop pianist of exemplary taste and range, Aaron Goldberg has worked mainly in collaborative settings since the release of his 2010 album, “Home”.
His superb new work, “The Now,” due out on Sunnyside on Tuesday, features Reuben Rogers on bass and Eric Harland on drums - Mr. Goldberg’s main rhythm team for the last 16 years - and inhabits precisely the sort of high-proficiency, no-nonsense, self-possessed air you’d expect." (NEW YORK TIMES)
"Pianist Aaron Goldberg’s lyricism is informed by a sly wit, open to shifts in mood, without ever losing a sense of narrative cohesion.
On this, (…), his fifth album, the Boston native and Harvard grad shows off his gifts as a natural balladeer, especially on the original waltz “The Wind in the Night,” its rich ascending chords matched by a recurring, melancholy descent, its single-note lines expanding and contracting with each new thought."
