Brandon Goldberg, now 13 years old, began to play piano by ear when he was three years old. He started with classical lessons at age five, but quickly found his passion for jazz and learned about the music and its history by listening to his favorite artists including Herbie Hancock, Bill Evans, Oscar Peterson, Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, and John Coltrane, just to name a few.
When Brandon plays the piano people become delighted with his music, not just Jazz appreciators but people, folks. He is a people’s champion… Along with all of the cleverness, the sophistication and the tasteful choices, this young man is swinging—swinging hard…Brandon is as affecting as any other new artists appearing on the scene today. I am a fan.”
