Aaron Goldberg is a young pianist and composer working at the forefront of jazz music. Most recently featured in the bands of both Wynton Marsalis and Kurt Rosenwinkel, his past tenures also include Joshua Red man, Al Foster and Madeleine Peyroux. After being “discovered” and hired by Betty Carter while still in college, he graduated from Harvard, moved to New York City and quickly became one of the world’s most in-demand side-men.
Since he was in his teens, however, he has maintained a trio with two of his best friends (and two of the most impeccable and dynamic musicians of their generation), Reuben Rogers (bass) and Eric Harland (drums) who are featured on his new album that marks also his Sunnyside debut.
With Worlds, Goldberg establishes himself as a great composer in his own right and also his trio, which rivals the finest in all of jazz. Guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel and vocalist Luciana Souza contribute guest performances each of them on one track.


Goldberg displays quick witted harmonic reflexes, fluid commnad of line and a cut to the cahse sense of narrative...A satisfying session.
