Alex Goodman Is the Next Big Thing In the Jazz World (Video)


Alex Goodman started out as a political science major at Montreal’s McGill University, and in just a few short years at the age of 26, has achieved fame and admiration few jazz guitarists can imagine. He is one of the most successful songwriters and performers in the jazz world and won the top coveted honor at Montreux Jazz Festival in the international guitar division. His album “Bridges” was nominated for a Juno jazz award, and he has written hundreds of songs and two complete scores for films.

Alex Goodman has been called “the next big thing in the jazz world, ” and even a “genius” by the Canadian press. While he says he was thankful growing up in his native Toronto because of its vibrant jazz culture, he loves his adopted New York City, and told CBS, “There are just so many people playing at a high level that you are immersed in jazz in a way that’s almost impossible in any other city.”

Not resting on his laurels, Goodman expressed his commitment to develop musicianship at the very highest levels, and loves collaborating with other musicians. What made him fall in love with jazz was, “I think I was intrigued by the ability to improvise and interact with band members in the moment and to create something very different each time.”
