Goldberg, Brown, Anderson
- Ben Goldberg - clarinet
- Sheldon Brown - alto saxophone
- Vijay Anderson - drums
The trio, which began in 2007 in Oakland California, features the unique instrumentation of Alto Saxophone, Clarinet, and Drums. They recently performed at the Novara Jazz Festival 2012 in Novara, Italy. The group specializes in a unique form of improvisation, which focuses on a subtle, continually expanding blend of shifting counterpoint and rhythm, inviting the listener to contemplate the spontaneous unfolding of melodic and harmonic structures. This approach explores the musical and intellectual legacy of masters such as Steve Lacy, Denis Charles, Ornette Coleman, and Thelonious Monk with the goal of creating something unique and new. As one fan stated at the group’s Italian debut, the trio pursues the “Advanced Tradition”.
We have a digital ablum available, The Reckoning, on the Minus Zero label. All proceeds for this album go to Planned Parenthood.
