1950, USA. As a very small child Goldstein began playing accordion before playing cello and piano. It was on the latter instrument that he concentrated, eventually studying at the Berklee College Of Music. He quickly proved himself as an able professional, working with musicians such as Lee Konitz and Pat Metheny in the early 70s and by the start of the next decade he had worked with the Gil Evans Orchestra, as concertmaster, and Wayne Shorter. From time to time he has returned to the accordion, playing with Karrin Allyson, Bob Berg, Eliane Elias, Richard Galliano, Didier Lockwood and Michel Petrucciani, in concert and/or on record. He has worked as pianist/keyboard player, live and on record, and as arranger and occasionally producer, with artists as diverse as Chet Baker, Michael Brecker, Randy Brecker, Billy Cobham, Miles Davis, Elements, Fleurine, Juliette Greco, Jim Hall, Eddie Harris, Dave Liebman, Pat Martino, Bob Mintzer, Helen Merrill, James Moody,...
