These are videos that I like: Ben Goldberg – “Care”


Ben Goldberg - "Orphic Machine"Today’s featured video is from Ben Goldeberg performing the song “Care,” a track from his new release Orphic Machine.  It’s from a March 2012 show at Berkeley, California’s Freight and Salvage.

The line-up is nearly identical to the ensemble that appears on the studio release, except for Jeff Parker is on guitar for this live show (Nels Cline performs on the album).  It’s a wonderful video performance, sounding identical and different from the studio version in all the right ways.  An excellent job done by Black Parrot Productions in putting this video series together.

Orphic Machine was my This Is Jazz Today Pick of the Week for the week of its release.  Read that column here (LINK).

Your video personnel:  Ben Goldberg (clarinets), Carla Kihlstedt (violin, voice), Greg Cohen (bass), Kenny Wollesen (vibraphone), Ron Miles (trumpet), Ches Smith (drums), Jeff Parker (guitar), Rob Sudduth (tenor sax) and Myra Melford (piano).


Have a great start to your weekend!
