  • Welcome To The Official Website of Gil Goldstein
    generally following his fascination and association with musicians around the world such as Brazilian masters Toninho Horta and Romero Lubambo resulting in the album Infinite Love and the great flamenco musicians Carles Benavente and Jorge Pardo who together recorded the album Zebra Coast But even as his recording career was getting under way Goldstein s various friends and collaborators began looking beyond his skills as an instrumentalist And playing jobs began to morph into arranging and producing jobs Case in point Jim Hall offered him the dream gig of joining his quartet in the mid 1980s and Goldstein eventually produced the 1993 Pat Metheny Jim Hall duet recording Something Special He also co produced co arranged and conducted on Hall s 1997 recording Textures However the turning point came when Goldstein met Gil Evans in 1982 and began playing with the master until his death six years later The association with Evans changed everything about Goldstein s musical perspective and his approach to arranging Gil Evans was a philosopher he says He possessed cultural secrets which I have tried to absorb and pass on further Goldstein s career split off in another direction in the 80s when he took an assignment to score an ABC After School Special Summer Switch which was also the directorial debut of Ken Kwapis The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants He s Just Not That Into You The Office Goldstein scored two more After School Specials and eventually composed music for a series of feature length motion pictures including Radio Inside 1994 I Love You I Love You Not 1997 and Simply Irresistible 1999 He also provided orchestration for film composer Ryuichi Sakamoto s music for Peter Kosminsky s Wuthering Heights 1992 and Bernardo Bertolucci s Little Buddha 1994 and Metheny s score for A Map of the World 1999 He is also an in demand accordionist particularly by film composer Eliot Goldenthal who has featured him in his music for Frida 2002 Across the Universe 2007 and many others Despite his work in film arranging continued to be Goldstein s creative anchor I kept coming back to working with musicians whom I liked and admired but I didn t necessarily want to just play with them he says I thought I could be more effective as an arranger and find ways to make their music resonate and vibrate according to the principles of the overtone series which he learned through studying with Otto Luening the 20th century composer who pioneered electronic music in the 1950s The list of musicians for whom Goldstein has arranged is as impressive as it is lengthy David Sanborn Bobby McFerrin Chris Botti Milton Nascimento James Moody Richard Bona Randy Brecker Manhattan Transfer Al Jarreau and many others He reconstructed orchestrations for Miles Davis Miles Davis and Quincy Jones Play the Music of Gil Evans which won a Grammy Award in 1993 In addition he produced and arranged Michael Brecker s last two recordings Wide Angles 2003 and Pilgrimage 2007

  • Arranging
    series of concerts in London a few years before the large ensemble project in which I arranged and orchestrated Mike s book for a small chamber orchestra and it inspired him to write directly for those instruments Our collaboration was flawless and if I have one gem in my output it is this project 4 Basin St Blues David Sanborn Working with Dave now on his last 5 or 6 records we have found a way to put our heads together and arrive at ways to make arrangements work Even though Dave has worked in rock and smooth jazz Dave s soul belongs in jazz from his association with Gil Evans and the Brecker s and we always meet him on that level Sometimes the job is purely orchestrational but on this one I got to add my own voice as it relates to Dave s 5 What are you doing the rest of your life Chris Botti Sting I have arranged for Chris since his first recording with orchestra and before that I orchestrated a film score for him I feel that I developed a particular instrumentation and arranging approach in our collaborations He has very strong ideas about
