Aaron Goldberg Trio holds down at the first "Jazz Day at SUNY Brockport"


The jazz does not just happen here in the city. It's all around us. Heads up that the New York City jazz artist Aaron Goldberg and the Aaron Goldberg Trio will be in residency during "Jazz Day" at SUNY Brockport on Friday, February 6th. The day-long event includes a symposium, “Jazz and its Evolution,” a master class for area jazz musicians of all skill levels, and a cocktail reception. The celebration of jazz will be capped by a concert by the Trio at The College's Tower Fine Arts Center Mainstage at 7:30 pm that evening. The Tower Fine Arts Center is located at 180 Holley Street in Brockport, NY.
Inspired by the rhythms of Brazil and Portugal, Goldberg is a rising star in the new generation of jazz artists. After attending the Berklee School of Music, Goldberg moved to New York City, where he has worked and studied with Betty Carter, Joshua Redman and Wynton Marsalis, among others. Marsalis has said that Goldberg is "a modern improviser of great clarity, finesse and dexterity.” Goldberg debuted as a bandleader and composer with the recording, Turning Point . About his most recent recording, Worlds , the Boston Globe raved “it's a gorgeous session that makes a compelling case for Goldberg's ensemble as one of the era's definitive piano trios.” There is more on the Trio's MySpace page.
This inaugural Jazz Day at SUNY Brockport is sponsored by the Marc and Ann Iacona Family. Iacona, President of Simcona Electronics Corporation, a Rochester-based company, is also the executive producer of the Rochester International Jazz Festival. Iacona believes that “music education is critical to understanding the intricacies and nuances of jazz. Musicians and non-musicians alike can develop a passion and deeper appreciation for what they’re hearing through music education.” His generosity has transformed Jazz Day from an idea to a projected three-year commitment. Jazz Day is also supported by the Brockport Foundation. Events surrounding Jazz Day on the Brockport campus include:
• 10:45–11:45 am: Symposium: “Jazz and its Evolution” at Edwards Hall, Room 100/“Blue Room” (free & open to the public).
• 4:00–5:00 pm: Master Class in the Tower Fine Arts Center/Lobby (free & open to the public).
• 6:00–7:00 pm: Cocktail reception in Edwards Hall Lobby (Ticket required). The reception will feature an open wine bar and hearty hors d’oeuvres, including several new gustatory creations from the kitchens of Garnishes Catering. Edwards Hall is located across Holley Street from Tower Fine Arts Center.
• 7:30–9:00 pm: Aaron Goldberg Trio in Concert at Tower Fine Arts Center/Mainstage (Ticket required).
The symposium and master class are free and open to the public, and will be moderated by Goldberg. Tickets for the concert are $12/General, $10/Seniors, College at Brockport Faculty and Staff and $8/Students.

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
