Greg Goebel: Piano
Greg Goebel is counted as one of the great new jazz promises on his instrument.

Born in Oregon, Greg began piano lessons at the age of four. Though improvising and composing music from an early age, it wasn’t until high school that he became seriously interested in jazz and improvisation. Greg graduated with a Bachelor of Music degree in Jazz Studies from the University Of Oregon School Of Music where he studied composition and improvisation with Gary Versace, Randy Porter and Steve Owen.

Throughout his high school and college careers, Greg has received numerous awards for excellence in musicianship and composition. Upon graduation he received the University’s award for Outstanding Undergraduate Performer in Music. The University said of his achievements, “[he] has personally done more to elevate the performance level of our jazz students than any other person, graduate or undergraduate, who has attended the U of O in at least the last fifteen years”. Greg has been recognized in Down Beat magazine with an award for Outstanding Original Composition. He has consistently been given top honors at music festivals including, most recently, Best Overall College Performer and three times Best Overall College Pianist at the Reno International Jazz Festival.

Goebel’s musical style, rich with subtle complexities and harmonic surprises make him a distinct voice among jazz pianists today.

Goebel has recorded and toured in the United States, Canada and Europe with renowned bassist David Friesen and is a current member of the David Friesen Trio. His work with the trio can be heard on Friesen’s 2009 CD, Five and Three, and on the 2011 CD, Circle of Three.

Goebel also records and currently tours with singer Gino Vannelli. His contributions can be heard on the CD, The Best and Beyond.

Also a member of the Portland Jazz Quintet, Goebel can be heard on Vol. I and Vol. II.
