Goldberg, Ben - Go Home (Mega Blowout Sale)

"Clarinetist / Composer Ben Goldberg announces the debut recording by Go Home, the first release on his new label. The release, entitled Go Home, features ten of Ben’s compositions. He is joined by Charlie Hunter on guitar, Scott Amendola on drums, and Ron Miles on cornet.
Ben says:
"Charlie, Scott, and I had been talking for a few years about recording together, and saw an opportunity when Scott and I would be at the Jazz Standard in New York for a week in April, 2008. Ron Miles was in town with Bill Frisell, and he joined us for two days at the Bunker studio in Williamsburg. I provided the tunes and a lovely time was had by all. Later, when I was thinking about it, the name Go Home came to me because the sound of the group is so direct and honest that for me it goes back to when I was little and music hit me so hard."
Clarinetist / Composer Ben Goldberg, whom John Zorn has called “one of the greatest clarinetists I have ever heard,” grew up in Denver, Colorado, and received degrees from the University of California and Mills College. He was a pupil of the eminent clarinetist Rosario Mazzeo, and studied with Steve Lacy and Joe Lovano. Ben’s group New Klezmer Trio "kicked open the door for radical experiments with Ashkenazi roots music." (San Francisco Chronicle). In addition to composing for and playing in Go Home and the Ben Goldberg Quintet, he currently performs with Tin Hat; plays monk, a trio with Scott Amendola and Devin Hoff; Myra Melford’s Be Bread; Nels Cline’s New Monastery; and Baal, a quartet featuring Jamie Saft, Greg Cohen, and Kenny Wollesen playing music from John Zorn’s Masada Book Two."
