The Aaron Goldberg Quartet TONIGHT!

February 1, 2011

Aaron Goldberg is a pianist and composer performing at the vanguard of jazz music. His new album Home (April 2010, Sunnyside) builds upon his last, Worlds, both exhibiting the sensitivity and dynamism of his longstanding trio featuring Reuben Rogers and Eric Harland. In addition to heading his trio, Aaron has spent the last 12 years touring with many of the most brilliant voices in jazz–Joshua Redman, Wynton Marsalis, Betty Carter, Nicholas Payton, Al Foster, Stefon Harris, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Madeleine Peyroux and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchesta among others.

Aaron was born in Boston and got hooked on jazz in high school by Bob Sinicrope and Jerry Bergonzi, two master educators. He spent a year at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music before graduating magna cum laude from Harvard College in 1996 with a degree in History and Science and a concentration in Mind, Brain and Behavior. On weekends he held a long-time residence at Wally’s Cafe in Boston, and the fall after graduation he moved to Brooklyn.

Aaron Goldberg and his Quartet will play the Vanguard tonight through Sunday. Check them out
