Miami Dade College’s ‘Jazz at Wolfson Presents’ Hammond B-3 Organist Jared Gold


Miami, October 3, 2013 - Miami Dade College’s (MDC) Arts and Philosophy Department will continue its successful jazz series, Jazz at Wolfson Presents, at noon, Wednesday, Oct. 16, featuring Hammond B-3 organist Jared Gold.

Jared Gold’s emergence as one of New York’s most in-demand Hammond B-3 organists stems from years of dedication to and respect of his craft.

With such influences as Larry Young, Larry Goldings, Jack McDuff and Don Patterson, he has molded a
unique philosophy based on extending harmonies and solidifying groove. Versatility has provided Gold the opportunity to work with such esteemed musicians as John Abercrombie, Dave Stryker, Kevin Mahogany, Bernard “Pretty” Purdie, Jimmy Ponder and Oliver Lake.

As a leader, Gold has six CDs on Posi-Tone Records. The latest, entitled Intuition, has received wide-ranging acclaim, with write-ups in Jazz Times and DownBeat magazines. He also has been included numerous times in DownBeat’s Rising Star awards.

“Jared Gold is part of a tradition of B-3 players that dates back to the 50s and 60s when that instrument was heard more often in jazz,” says series director and MDC professor Dr. Michael Di Liddo. “Although we hear that tradition in Gold’s playing, he has put his own “stamp” on the style and is helping bring the instrument into the new century. He is an amazing musician and will present something unique to our campus and the downtown community.”

MDC’s Jazz at Wolfson Presents features live performances that run monthly from September through April. The concerts are free and open to the public.
