In January 2014 I found myself at 4 shows and one studio session featuring Ben Goldberg. I think I taped all five. I'm slowly working through the footage and will post some more this Spring.
Walking into Duende on January 23, I didn't know what musical direction the group would take. I first heard of Myra Melford and Ben Goldberg when they independently collaborated with The Nice Guy Trio in 2008, but I hadn't heard of Mary Oliver or Han Bennink, so I was in for a treat. In love with all the emotion Han wrings out of his drum set before settling into the hard driving swing in the second part of the tune.
I should have miked the piano. I didn't. I apologize.
