Following his acclaimed first album, Dexter Goldberg (the French pianist with the predestined first name!) is back on record leading a completely renewed trio, formed with two young French jazz wizards. Summoning the genuine spirit of childhood and the pleasure of interplay, Goldberg puts his trio into perspective, moving from homage to the great masters — in particular, Ahmad Jamal, who encouraged him just before passing — to the joyful building of moving musical forms. Dazzling!

GOLDBERG(S) is a duo, a deeply woven musical relationship, which draws from our natural father-son complicity... but also from an equal and intense passion for music. It's a complicity but also a stubborn work of rehearsal, research, and arrangements that has allowed us to explore almost every facet of color, space, and sonic material that this intimate formation of the duo offers.

The repertoire has been shaped by our respective musical journeys... it results from meticulous choices: beautiful timeless melodies, too rarely played for some, sometimes melancholic, joyful, or romantic, which bring us together and serve as a bridge with our audience, so sensitive to this repertoire full of character.

From a natural father-son complicity, this intimate and precious album was born, charged with emotion. The list of songs, shaped by our respective musical journeys, results from meticulous choices: beautiful melodies, tinged with optimism, melancholy, romance.

With a name like that, could this brilliant pianist escape his fate as a jazzman ? A joyous virtuosity, an alert touch and relaxed movements, Dexter Goldberg has jazz under his fingers. From rhythmic meetings to a catchy groove with sudden changes, his first album "Tell Me Something New" sounds like a playful manifest of a trio that reaches beyond the established formula by the grace of his writing and the joy from constantly changing the game. A jazzman is born : he's called Dexter Goldberg.
