"Passion No Distraction is akin to a musical journey. The best way to enjoy this record is to close your eyes, and let the music pave the way, opening the doors to your imagination."
My new single "The Show" will be released on January 24. It's a quirky little Jazz ensemble tune perfect for a show introduction. Stay tuned!

Check out the new album review published on Ink19.com. I appreciate the kind words!
Thanks to JazzCorner for publishing an interview they did with me on my "origin story". Everyone has one, and this summarizes mine.
Longtime Austin-based musician and composer Alan Goldberg creates a roller coaster ride of piano-based progressive fusion music to give the listener surprises, twists, and weightless moments.
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 The Allman Brothers and Chick Corea, 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.
As a solo recording artist, he realized that the way to capture his passion most honestly was to “just press record” and capture his piano performances in real time. This approach served as the backbone for his latest album - “Passion No Distraction”,
The music from his three previous albums-, “Fuel For The Fire” (vinyl only!), “Small Acts”, and “Chasing Stray Flames” is used for meditation, yoga, relaxation, background music in spiritual settings. " I play a fusion of “proggy” rock, blues, and jazz that demanded attention.” Goldberg explains regarding his new album.
