Considered as one of the most promising French pianists of his generation, Dexter Goldberg's journey was by no means typical...
Completely self-taught on the piano, he was accepted into Paris's prestigious conservatory where he learned to combine his Debussy-like classical influences with the hard-swinging bop from his American roots.
With critical acclaim in the France press from the likes of Jazzman & JazzThing magazines, he now brings his poetic take on jazz to a wider audience.
