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. On his most recent 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.”
Aaron Goldberg will be performing for MCG Jazz on Saturday, June 1 at 7:30 pm. Only a limited number of tickets remain. For more information, or to purchase your tickets, visit the Aaron Goldberg event page. MCG Jazz is located at 1815 Metropolitan Street in Manchester.
