Use the Bandcamp player below to preview the album or order downloads Consider The Blues by Will Goble“For his second recording as a leader, bassist Will Goble is joined by drummer Dave Potter, his long-time rhythm section mate in Jason Marsalis’ Quartet, master saxophonist Greg Tardy and the Atlanta-based pianist Louis Heriveaux. Through arrangements of compositions by Mary Lou Williams and George Gershwin, and originals inspired by the 2015 Nepali earthquakes, racial injustice, and other emotion-charged events, Goble presents the blues as an aesthetic through which all people can make their stories known. From the opening “Another Man Gone Down,” a traditional chain gang song with guest vocalist Tabreeca Woodside, to Goble’s uptempo “The Ants Went Marching One By One But They Didn’t Come Back,” the blues are captured with a variety of outlooks, but always through the infinitely variable lens of swing.” Amazon Prime Customers: Order “Consider The Blues” and receive free shipping and guaranteed deliver by May 20th 2016!

The Kirtipur Suite is now available!

The Kirtipur Suite is now available!

My new duo recording, “The Kirtipur Suite,” with pianist Michael Kocour and special guest guitarist Jeff Libman, is now available. This is music I wrote in response to the Nepali earthquakes. Recorded in just 3 hours, 3 mics, no edits. All proceeds benefiting rebuilding in the town of Kirtipur, Nepal. Check it out, and please share! My wonderful wife, Ashley Hagaman, is conducting her PhD research in Nepal. She was in country during the bulk of the earthquakes and aftershocks. Her very good friend, Uden Maharjan, hails from the village of Kirtipur, a home to the indigenous Newar community in Kathmandu. The small city is known for its beautiful historic buildings and temples, almost all of which are now gayo (gone). Uden and the Kirtipur Reconstruction Committee (a locally driven initiative) are beginning to rebuild their neighborhood. By downloading and donating through this website, you will be sending direct contributions to the rebuilding of Kirtipur homes. One home costs about $1500 USD to rebuild. I wrote the music you’ll find here in this mini-album shortly following the Nepal earthquake and it’s many serious aftershocks during April/May 2015. The Kirtipur Suite – Will Goble and Michael Kocour by Will Goble We recorded with just a few microphones, some simple engineering and mixing, no edits, a few takes of each track, and little else (of course, NO dreaded bass direct). The first song of the suite, “Hold Tight” musically introduces the setting, the earthquake, and the tenuous sense of “calm,” found both before and after such an event. “Uncertainty” primarily aims to capture the feeling (not from experience) of the very ground beneath us moving and the ongoing sense of fear and wariness that comes from this unpredictable phenomenon and it’s accompanying consequences. “Hopefully” is written for the resiliency of the people in Nepal and an international effort to help, rebuild, and cultivate. Finally, “Play The Blues And Smile Too” provides an admittedly American response to such terrifying circumstances with a sense of optimism, and again, hope: by playing the blues… ALL proceeds go to the Kirtipur Reconstruction Committee through Ashley and Uden. Please email me at willgoblemusic _at_ gmail_dot_com with any questions about the stewardship of funds.

Some Stories Tell No Lies Reviewed on JazzTimes.com & JazzReview.com

Thank you to Bruce Pulver of the JazzTimes.com community and JazzReview.com for taking the time to listen to and review “Some Stories Tell No Lies. Bruce has contributed reviews for many great artists, and always listens thoughtfully and thoroughly. You can read his review here: http://jazztimes.com/community/articles/69515-will-goble-s-some-stories-tell-no-lies-is-a-certified-truth Here’s just a taste of Bruce’s thoughts: “Will Goble’s “Some Stories Tell No Lies” is a certified TRUTH Will Goble oozes a relaxed confidence both when performing with his bass and when engaging an audience. Truly at ease behind the bass, Goble’s personality can’t hide his jubilance of making music. His excitement is contagious, infects his band mates and those that witness his performances. Still solidly in his twenties, Goble’s resume boasts the work of an experienced, seasoned artist and it shows in his playing and his compositions. He kicks it when needed and weaves through musical nuances as called for. His musicianship is a joy to hear AND see… Teaming with long time rhythm section collaborators Austin Johnson, piano and Dave Potter, Drums, Goble calls on Marcus Printup’s seasoned trumpet and the soulful saxophone of Chad Eby. These guys absolutely KILL IT...
