With 4 critically acclaimed CDs, Marcus Goldhaber has quickly become known for his songwriting as well as his intimate approach to straight-ahead Jazz. With a 4-star review, PEOPLE Magazine has said, “Goldhaber will have you giddy one moment and melancholy the next and loving every note.” Jazztimes has labeled Marcus as “Wonderfully imaginative,” while Jazziz says he is “exciting and fresh” and All About Jazz simply proclaims, [Marcus is] “like a plate full of comfort food.”
Born and raised in Buffalo, New York, Marcus developed a passion for Jazz and the songs of the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s alongside a 1928 Ivers & Pond upright piano, on which his mother casually played countless standards. Marcus currently performs in many of the greatest Jazz venues in NYC including: Iridium, The Kitano, The Metropolitan Room, The Cutting Room, Sweet Rhythm, Opia, The Friars Club, The Makor/Steinhardt Center, The Carnegie Club, Lenox Lounge and a guest spot with the legendary Les Paul. He has also performed concerts at NYC’s Worldwide Plaza, The AOL Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle and has maintained longer engagements at both the Benjamin Hotel and The Night Hotel.
Poised for breakout success, acclaimed NYC jazz vocalist-songwriter MARCUS GOLDHABER takes another considerable step forward with the Oct. 14, 2014 release of A LOVELY WAY TO SPEND AN EVENING (Fallen Apple Records/The Orchard) – the first album with major distribution behind this rapidly rising artist who JazzTimes says “rivals the jazz instincts of Chet Baker and John Pizzarelli.” The powerful, 12-track collection reintroduces some of Goldhaber’s favorite standards alongside five new originals, highlighting his artistic evolution from a “wonderfully imaginative” jazz interpreter to a wistfully undeniable composer & lyricist of modern standards, while remaining “exciting and fresh” (Jazziz) with every progression. Goldhaber has garnered tremendous critical acclaim as a recording artist, with PEOPLE Magazine saying the New Yorker with the youthfully carefree sweet tenor “will have you giddy one moment and melancholy the next and loving every note.”
