Charles Goold, is one of the city’s hardest working jazz drummers of his generation. Son of Ned Goold, legendary saxophonist, Charles was able to hear, live and embody jazz from the day he was born, performing with a variety of musicians since age 11. Goold graduated from The Juilliard School and was awarded The Juilliard Career Advancement Fellowship Grant in May 2017. Goold has performed with the best in the jazz industry and a wide variety of acts from Wynton Marsalis and The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Johnny O’Neal, Steve Nelson to collaborations with rap legends Talib Kweli, Ghostface Killah and Cam’Ron. Goold’s debut album “Rhythm in Contrast” features all of these different influences ranging from Jazz to Afro Caribbean rhythms and funk.
The drummer Charles Goold and his band are hard-charging on “Sequence of Events,” the opening track to his debut album as a bandleader, “Rhythm In Contrast.” He starts it with a four-on-the-floor drum solo that has as much calypso and rumba in it as it does swing.
When the band comes in – the slicing guitar of Andrew Renfroe leading the way, with Steve Nelson’s vibraphone, Taber Gable’s piano and Noah Jackson’s bass close on his heels – that open approach to his rhythmic options remains. Goold graduated from Juilliard, probably the premiere conservatory for traditional-jazz pedagogy, but he’s also toured with hip-hop royalty. All of that’s in evidence here, as he homes in on a sincere update to the mid-century-modern jazz sound.
