Have Saxophone, Will Play

I’m Michael Gold, a San Francisco-based jazz saxophonist. I play in some great groups—trios, quartets, quintets, and big bands—with a bunch of the Bay Area’s most creative and talented musicians. I’d love to share our music with you.

I recently returned from an ear-opening listening tour in and around Havana, Cuba. Wow, that wild island is brimming with infectious polyrhythms and sensuous, romantic melodies! I hope to get some of that into and out of my horn in the coming months. If you’d like to sample the music we heard on that trip, check out this Spotify playlist.
