“For over 20 years, pianist Aaron Goldberg has set himself apart as one of the most scintillating performers in jazz,” hails JazzTimes. Goldberg is widely heralded as one of the art form’s most compelling pianists, both leading his own trio and collaborating with such brilliant icons as Joshua Redman, Wynton Marsalis, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Guillermo Klein, Ron Carter, Joe Lovano , Ravi Coltrane and many more. Simultaneously swinging and embracing risk, his stylistically fluid, singular voice reveals that jazz is a tradition of innovation.
“‘Home’ is full of swirling currents and dizzying flourishes, but its basic temperament is reflective, inward-seeking. It’s a statement of confident serenity. ” - The New York Times
“On ‘Worlds’ Goldberg works hand-in-glove with Rogers and Harland, his bass–drum team of choice for the last decade, displaying quick-witted harmonic reflexes, fluid command of line and a cut-to-the-chase sense of narrative logic.” - DOWNBEAT
“...a superlative group [which has] forged a singular sound with an expansive textural palette and a tenaciously intuitive approach…one of the era's definitive piano trios.” - The Boston Globe
Born in New York City, violinist Jake Shulman-Ment is widely “considered one of the finest klezmer fiddlers on the planet” (Jon Kalish, NPR). He tours, records, and teaches internationally and has spent two decades traveling and living in Eastern Europe, learning violin traditions and researching old Jewish music from master fiddlers. Drawing from his upbringing in a community of people dedicated to practicing secular Yiddish culture in New York City as well as from his extensive travel, research and study, he has synthesized an expressive and individual style that is deeply rooted in diasporic folk tradition. Jake speaks to audiences intimately through his singular voice on the violin, sings Yiddish folk songs of philosophy, love, and resistance, and shares stories and musings about life, music, wandering, and being human.
