Shows at 7:30pm and 9:30pm nightly
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. A founding member of Betty Carter’s famed and indispensable Jazz Ahead program, Aaron continued his ascent performing in bands led by Al Foster, Freddie Hubbard, Nicholas Payton, Stefon Harris, and Mark Turner among others. By the late 1990s, he was garnering wider attention, and an incessant touring schedule found him both inspired by music from around the world yet appreciative of the Zen creativity that only jazz demands. As leader, the pianist has released five albums including his latest The Now (Sunnyside, 2015). This much–anticipated engagement features the great drummer Leon Parker, making his first major NYC club appearance since his move to France nearly fifteen years ago – make your reservations now!
