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.
