Eric Golub with Larry Vuckovich, piano
Eric Golub and Larry Vuckovich have been playing together since the 1980 landmark Vuckovich recording Blue Balkan was issued featuring Golub on violin AND viola.
They will perform wide ranging program of World Music including selections from Middle East/Balkan ethnic Gypsy Roma, Tango Jazz & Classical Music influences, Hard Bop & more.
Eric Golub is a multi-faceted string improviser who has been performing and recording on jazz viola and violin for more than 35 years, including featured performances alongside such artists as Tom Harrell, Bobby Hutcherson, Solar Plexus and Sadao Watanabe. Erics unique style draws upon his unusually diverse expertise in world music traditions, including Indonesian, Chinese and Japanese idioms, even as an accomplished Hawaiian singer. He contributed his authentic Balkan gypsy fiddle improvisations to the seminal globally-flavored jazz release Blue Balkan by Larry Vuckovich, with whom he continues to work closely.
Pianist Larry Vuckovich is a legendary jazz pianist who has played with all the jazz greats of the past 40 years, including a long stint with Jon Hendricks. His album is recognized as the first release which fused Balkan ethnic music with American Jazz in the US, thus making Larry a pioneer in this genre. This LP has since been re-released in a CD format in 2002 with added new material and has received high praise from major publications/critics, one of which is the esteemed New York critic, Gary Giddins. Gary chose Blue Balkan: Then & Now for his top CD list of that year in the Village Voice. Larry and Eric will cover a wide ranging program of music as described above. The beautiful Baldwin piano and the acoustics at the Point Richmond Methodist Church hall are important features of this event.
