A member of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra (formally known as the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra) and the Wynton Marsalis Septet since 1993, as well as the Artistic Director of The Juilliard School's Jazz Program since it's inception in 2001, multi-reedman Victor Goines has been widely recognized for his musicianship, both as a solo artist and ensemble player.

Mr. Goines has an active solo career as a leader performing and recording with his own quartet and quintet. With his latest 2006 release, New Adventures (Criss Cross Records) Goines alternates tenor and soprano saxophones and clarinet on original material and standards. “Like Ellington, Goines recasts the blues with different feelings and context. He crafts grooves that actually groove and writes ballads to come across like a long, slow dance," writes Times-Picayune music critic, Keith Spera. For his Churchill Grounds appearance, Mr. Goines will be performing selections from New Adventures, as well as his 2000 release Sunrise to Midnight (Rosemary-Joseph Records).

He has performed and collaborated with Wynton Marsalis, the Wycliffe Gordon Quintet, Herlin Riley Quartet, Ellis Marsalis, Marcus Roberts, Branford Marsalis, Bob Dylan, Dianne Reeves, Garth Fagin, Ray Charles, Mark O'Connor, Rene Fleming, Cassandra Wilson, Terence Blanchard and a host of other renowned musicians.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
