Harrison Goldberg is a familiar face along California's Mendocino-Sonoma County coast. With his trademark tools of tenor, alto and soprano saxophones, Harrison can be seen and heard in numerous local venues and on a wide variety of live and studio recordings. He maintains a leading presence in both fine Jazz, and in the more esoteric "Improv" and Intuitive Music communities north of the San Francisco Bay Area, and is a regular and prominent participant in the area's community and public events.
The energetic and creative grandson of a Russian immigrant hat maker, Harrison has “worn a few hats of his own making”, including that of an abstract artist in the Dadaist tradition, a creative writer, a wine label designer, a sponsor of music education workshops, and a mentor for young musicians. His visual art pieces including paintings, collages and wine art have garnered their share of awards, and found their way into corporate and private collections worldwide.
Harrison is an alumnus of the famed Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, and has been playing saxophone professionally since the age of 17.
Instruments: Yamaha YSS-62 soprano sax, Selmer MKVI tenor sax, and Conn 1920’s vintage silver alto sax
Listen for his latest acquisition, a Roland Aerophone AE-10 Digital Wind Insrument, to be showcased on future recordings.
