An adventurous postbop pianist, Aaron Goldberg has played with many of the major names of modern jazz and uplifts every situation in which he finds himself. Born in Boston in 1974, Goldberg began playing piano when he was 7. He studied at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music when he was 17, privately with Jerry Bergonzi, and at Harvard. He was a founding member of Betty Carter’s Jazz Ahead program in 1993. After graduating from Harvard in 1996 with a degree in History and Science, Goldberg began a series of important associations with top jazz musicians in New York. He worked with Gregory Tardy, Al Foster, Nicholas Payton, Stefon Harris, Tom Harrell and Mark Turner.

During 1998-2002 he was a regular member of Joshua Redman’s quartet. Goldberg worked with guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel for two years, toured South America in 2005 with Madeleine Peyroux, and for six months performed regularly with the Wynton Marsalis Quartet and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra. He has also worked with the Terry Gibbs/Buddy DeFranco group, John Ellis, Mark Elf, Jimmy Greene and the OAM Trio. Goldberg recorded his first CD as a leader (Turning Point) for J Curve in 1999 and has also recorded for Sunnyside. His current trio also includes bassist Reuben Rogers and drummer Eric Harland.
