The Outstanding Jazz Pianist Aaron Goldberg Plays the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame
Our guest on this installment of ST is the widely celebrated NYC-based jazz pianist Aaron Goldberg (born in Boston in 1974), whose playing has been tagged by The New York Times as "versatile and impressive, and he swings hard.... [He's a] sharp young pianist with a superb rhythm section." He has been active on the national/international jazz scene since the early 1990s, playing with everyone from Betty Carter, Wynton Marsalis, Al Foster, and Terry Gibbs, to Joshua Redman, Mark Turner, Ali Jackson, and Kurt Rosenwinkel. Goldberg will be leading a first-rate trio --- with Gregory Hutchinson on drums and Matt Penman on bass --- at the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame tomorrow night (Thursday the 27th) at 7pm. The Jazz Hall is located in downtown Tulsa at 111 East 1st Street.
