About Ben Goldberg, Gerald Cleaver, and Liberty Ellman

“[Goldberg] is an artist who seems to find beautiful melodies at the end of every path.” — NPR

“Ellman’s] music most typically finds a way to crackle like vintage Blue Note jazz while lurching in strange metric patterns that come from the compositional experiments of the last 20 years.” —Popmatters

Ben Goldberg’s thoughtful, compelling music has tributaries from klezmer, bebop, and contemporary concert music. His unique approach to the clarinet and other woodwinds has been inspired and informed by artists as diverse as Joe Lovano and Steve Lacy. As a composer, Goldberg is a seeker and sorcerer all in one, delighting audiences with the unexpected. Joined by some of his closest musical friends, this performance will draw from his Porch Concert Material program.
