Jazz vocalist Marcus Goldhaber's debut album, The Moment After, reveals quite an interesting family history. Goldhaber's love of the Great American Songbook stems from the many times his mother would gather all around the 1928 Ivers & Pond upright piano and call out to young Marcus, "This one, you should know" in the same manner that her parents had done when she was the same age as him. In a sense, this Buffalo, New York griot (forgive me, Goldhabers) was passing along an aural tradition that worked wonders, insofar as instilling the respect and familiarity with the great tunes of the Twentieth Century. I'm sorry that the album wasn't titled "This One, You Should Know"! Listening to The Moment After, I'm tempted to say that Marcus Goldhaber sounds like someone else.
