David Goldberg Quartet: Jazz Standard

This is a group of South Florida- based musicians in their twenties. The leader, saxophonist Goldberg, displays a strong and assured tone and a maturity of style, rooted in swinging mainstream modern jazz coming out of the Miles mode.

The piano-less group also features Duane Allen on guitar, who supplies rhythmic backing, as well as some sharp solos. Undergraduates Dan Feiszli and John Arcan are on bass and drums.

The group does a decent job plowing through some jazz standards, including searching values on a coupling of “Lonely Woman” and “Nefertiti” with eastern sounding bent guitar notes and soprano sax, and more standard renditions ranging from Wayne Shorter to “Take the ‘A’ Train”.
