FIREHOUSE 12 TO PRESENT BEN GOLDBERG QUINTET
On Friday June 8th, Firehouse 12 is pleased to present Ben Goldberg in a new ensemble configuration featuring Mary Halvorson, Ellery Eskelin, Michael Formanek, and Tomas Fujiwara. The group builds off of Goldberg’s other group The Out Louds with Halvorson and Fujiwara to expand into new sonic territory.
Goldberg’s “compositional purview is consistently imaginative” (Troy Collins, AllAlboutJazz.com) and has “earned a reputation as a rigorous envelope-pusher” (Peter Margasak, DownBeat).
Goldberg has been listed in DownBeat critics polls in 2011 and 2013. In 2013 he released two new records on his own record label BAG Productions, Subatomic Particle Homesick Blues and Unfold Ordinary Mind.
