Over the last two decades the Bay Area´s Ben Goldberg has had few rivals as one of the most vibrant, flexible and inventive clarinetists in jazz and improvised music. From his membership in the pan-stylistic collective Tin Hat to rigorous sideman work with pianist Myra Melford or guitarist Nels Cline, he´s able to adapt his playing perfectly to each given context without surrendering his personality as a tough sonic explorer.
from Peter Margasak

Latest releases: Subatomic Particle Homesick Blues and Unfold Ordinary Mind on BAG ProductionRecords .


The New York Times’ Ben Ratliff writes that the records convey “a feeling of joyous research into the basics of polyphony and collective improvising, the constant usefulness of musicians intuitively coming together and pulling apart.” (Read the full review here).

In the Chicago Reader Peter Margasak says “Both albums mark a concerted effort by the reedist to bring out his more melodic side, and on that count he succeeds magnificently, delivering some of the most gorgeous and pleasing compositions in his career.”

And over at Something Else Reviews Victor Aaron considers Subatomic Particle Homesick Blues: “Clarinetist Ben Goldberg sometimes gets so out front with his musical vision, it takes years to catch up with him.” And, in regard to Unfold Ordinary Mind: “Keep in mind, though, that there’s nothing ordinary about Ben Goldberg’s music, not even on an album with the word “ordinary” in the name.”
