I first heard (of) Aaron Goldberg when I baught my last computer, which came with Vista, which came with Windows Media Player, which came with several songs, including "OAM's Blues" from Goldberg's "Worlds" which I am reviewing now. "OAM's Blues" really impressed me. It's a post-bop tune, fast and exciting, while complex and intrecuite. I was blown away by Goldberg's fast and precise playing, the drummer, Eric Harland's great solo, and the composition. It was really fantastic. But this is only one song from the album, and the others are differant. Each one seems to be of it's own genre, blending and mixing differnt styles untill it's indescribable. This man is a musical genius!

Favorite tracks from the album:

"OAM's Blues"

"Kianda's Song" Featuring Luciana Souza on vocals (who, coincidentally(?) also had a song ("Muita Boberia") included with Vista's version of WMP). But she dosen't sing any lyics, she sings the medley.

"Oud to Omer" Featuring Kurt Rosenwinkel on guitar.

"Shed"

This is just a great, varied, and exciting album. Four stars.
