An Evening with Ben Goldberg
Written by Mark Leviton on August 20, 2020
Part One airing from 8-10PM on Tuesday August 25
The composer Ben Goldberg plays clarinet like no one else, whether he’s doing jazz, classical, klezmer or an unclassifiable hybrid. He’s collaborated with Joshua Redman, Nels Cline, Scott Amendola, Charlie Hunter and John Zorn, among many others. Ever since the pandemic shut down his live performances, he’s been recording a new piece every day at home as part of a “Plague Diary.” Guest host Mark Leviton will present choices from Goldberg’s huge, and inspirational, catalog of recordings.
