The Dave Goldberg/ Duane Allen Quartet is based on 1950's and 1960's bebop and modern jazz. By working together Dave Goldberg and Duane Allen have formed a unique partnership, which has allowed them to focus on original compositions as well as the traditional jazz standards. For the past twenty years Goldberg and Allen have performed throughout the South Florida, New York City, and Los Angeles to critical acclaim. Jazz writer Matt Schudel of the Ft. Lauderdale Sun Sentinel writes, "Dave Goldberg and Duane Allen play solid, bop influenced jazz the way it's supposed to be done."

In 1993 saxophonist Dave Goldberg graduated from Florida State University with a B.A. in Jazz Studies. He has performed with notable musicians such as Freddie Hubbard, Ira Sullivan, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Marcus Roberts, Roy Hargrove, Gene Bertoncini, Adam Nussbaum, and Marcus Printup. Dave Goldberg has led successful jazz groups in the Ft. Lauderdale/Miami area, New York City, and now Los Angeles. He has also been featured in various jazz magazines and publications. A recent review in Jazz Times Magazine had this to say about him…"Goldberg, displays a strong and assured tone and a maturity of style, rooted in swinging mainstream modern jazz."

Guitarist Duane Allen graduated in 1996 from Florida International University with a B.A. in Music Education. He has played with top jazz musicians such as Ira Sullivan, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Arturo Sandoval, Kevin Mahogany, and Adam Nussbaum. After attending one of Duane Allen's performances, the Ft. Lauderdale Sun Sentinel gave him an outstanding review. "Allen's guitar shimmers with original chords and tasty single-note solos, somewhat in the style of jazz giant Jim Hall." Duane is known for having a very original style, blending elements of Thelonious Monk and Herbie Hancock with the blues-like quality of Wes Montgomery or Kenny Burrell. Duane has also been leading his own jazz trios in Los Angeles. These Trios are featured on Duane Allen's 2012 CD release "In Transit" and his 2004 CD release "Yin-Yang."

Dave Goldberg and Duane Allen currently have eight CD releases on Tritone Records. The CDs have drawn praise from Jazz Times Magazine and other international publications. “When Time Approaches" was the winner of the 2001 City Link Best of Jazz Award. Matt Schudel - jazz writer for the Sun Sentinel says "When Time Approaches is an excellent effort in every way" with "original music in the finest sense". “Surreality" was described by LA. Jazz Scene as “the future of jazz without digging up all the roots." “The Path You Choose" received extensive radio airplay along with rave reviews and ranked as high as number 3 on the jazz charts. Dave Goldberg's “Random Occurrences" was called "his finest playing on record...strongly recommended" by jazz writer Scott Yanow.

Dave Goldberg and Duane Allen's latest project has them going in a different direction once again, this time under the band name Trio Eclectic. Having done many totally improvised concerts over the years, it was time to take this concept into the studio. The result is 10 completely different sketches that are explored, each one invoking colors from a different genre of music, but still rooted in jazz. This concept wasn't lost on Scott Yanow as he describes their new band..."Trio Eclectic provides a consistently intriguing, diverse and colorful yet surprisingly accessible set of inventive jazz."

While never leaving their traditional roots behind, Dave Goldberg and Duane Allen are looking forward to push the boundaries with Trio Eclectic in 2015 and beyond.
