Segment, a Goldsby/Test/Dekker collaboration, comes directly from the heart of the legendary WDR Big Band. Recorded in June 2020, as part of the WDR celebration of small group music, the album offers a broad range of big-hearted, focused, joyful music from one of the world’s busiest jazz rhythm sections. The trio displays an uncanny clairvoyance—the kind only heard in groups who perform together regularly. Sensitive, swinging, and grounded by the many years they’ve spent accompanying members of the international jazz scene, Goldsby/Dekker/Test capture the wonderful, wild pulse of the jazz tradition, while adding innovative touches of color, light, and groove.
Goldsby’s bass career has shaped a wide arc of music, holding down the low end for everyone from Jay McShann to Louie Bellson. His work as solo bassist with the Grammy- winning WDR Big Band since 1994 has encompassed the entire spectrum of the modern jazz tradition—from Eddie Harris, Johnny Griffin and James Moody to Roy Hargrove, Take Six, Chucho Valdes, Gary Burton and Knower. The smooth transition from sideman to bandleader surprises to no one; Goldsby’s natural magnetism, attention to detail, and passion for the jazz genre have steered him front and center on several occasions: Tale of the Fingers Viewpoint, and Space for the Bass.
