New York based composer, saxophonist, clarinetist, penny whistler and vocalist, Morris Goldberg recently completed recording his third album with his group, OJOYO. Mr. Goldberg grew up in Observatory, Cape Town, South Africa, and nurtured musical roots that span jazz, classical music, bebop and mbaqanga.
Well known to jazz lovers, Mr. Goldberg won popular acclaim through his featured performances on Paul Simon’s “Graceland” album. Goldberg performed with Hugh Masekela, among others, before leaving South Africa to broaden his musical horizons.From 1980 until 1988 Morris traveled and performed with Harry Belafonte. He appeared on three videos. The last one, “An Evening with Harry Belafonte and Friends”, was done for PBS and can still be seen on PBS stations throughout the country.
Goldberg attained nationwide acclaim as saxophonist and wind specialist on “The Rosie O’Donnell Show” for the six year duration of the television show, from 1996 until 2002. During that time he accompanied many artists such as Tony Bennett, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Barry Manilow, Phil Collins and more.
In 2004 Goldberg did an extensive tour of the USA with Hugh Masekela, playing major jazz festivals and culminating in the Playboy Jazz Festival, which was recorded and aired on WBGO Newark and WLIU Southampton.
