Jonathan Goldberger

Guitarist Jonathan Goldberger spent most of his youth on the outskirts of the Everglades in Florida. From there he migrated west to the Rockies where he studied with musical guru Art Lande and played and toured with the cult spacey/bluesy Fat Mama. He found his way to Brooklyn in 2001 where he has worked extensively in both the music and film worlds. Goldberger has composed and produced music for two award-winning feature films, Trans and The Hawk is Dying. He performs and tours with artists and bands including Red Baraat, Jim Black (John Zorn's Bagatelles...including a performance at the Village Vanguard), and Joe Russo (Hooteroll, etc) among many others. Recent recordings include the acoustic collective Surface to Air, Chris Lightcap’s Superette (with Nels Cline and John Medeski), Red Baraat, and his own album Visitors (with JP Schlegelmilch and Jim Black), one of Rolling Stone’s 20 Best Jazz Albums of 2018.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
