May 30, 2022 - New Single Released!! "Cinnamon" - upbeat instrumental jazz/funk combo on many streaming services, including:
I REALLY like Cinnamon. A lot. My daughter makes a cinnamon babka that's to die for. In fact, I don't know anyone who doesn't like cinnamon. I focused my happy feelings about cinnamon to infuse this song, so that the song for me, via musical alchemy, actually became "musical cinnamon". I hope I communicate that in this upbeat song.
This jazz/funk instrumental piece is an upbeat jazz ensemble tune. My thanks to:
Mark Morgan - Trumpet
Jake Naugle - Drums
Jeff Miguel - Bari Sax
Luke Wriglesworth - Tenor Sax
It's out!! SMALL ACTS 20th ANNIVERSARY EDITION on many streaming services, including:
and your other favorite streaming services......
In 2001, I released a CD (remember those?) of solo piano music called “Small Acts”, so named because each song represented a small act that I can do to make myself and hopefully a small part of the world, better.
Now 2o years later, a completely remixed and remastered version, with three new "small acts" is coming. Read the story here.
New videos from "Small Acts-20th Anniversary Edition" bonus tracks:
Longtime Austin-based musician and composer Alan Goldberg uses his passion for melody, harmony, and the divine to fuel his compositions. Anchored by the piano and supported by jazz, progressive rock, and blues, his musical explorations flow from prog rock to mellow jazz in a seamless web of musical storytelling.
Goldberg’s roots in classic progressive rock, including such bands as Yes, Jethro Tull, Genesis, Frank Zappa, and The Who, along with blues rock and jazz fusion influences like Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea, built a foundation of melody, harmony, and rhythm that fused together and molded his improvisational piano style. He has played keyboards in local Austin blues/Rock bands for the past 20 years, absorbing the Austin vibe to keep the musical roots and vibe fresh and immediate.
The music from his first three albums is used for meditation, yoga, relaxation, and background music in spiritual settings. Goldberg plays a fusion of prog rock, blues, and jazz in "Passion No Distraction", and returns to jazz ensemble in "The Show EP".
