Native New Yorker Charles Goold, is one of the city's hardest working jazz drummers of his generation. Son of Ned Goold, legendary saxophonist whose credits include Harry Connick Jr, Jack McDuff, Vernell Fournier and many others, Charles was able to hear, live and embody jazz from the day he was born. Charles has also performed with a variety of musicians since playing professionally at the age of 14. Under the tutelage of his father, Charles was able to get "real" jazz education from an early age, playing weekly at Smalls with his father and going to see and study legendary bebop drummers such as Leroy Williams, Jimmy Lovelace, Jimmy Wormworth and Billy Kaye, not to mention Goold's first gig was playing at Arturo's with great pianist Harry Whitaker. With this precious knowledge handed down from his elders Goold has been able to perform with of the best in the business like John Hendricks, Andy Bey, Johnny O'Neal, the Cab Calloway Orchestra, a concert with Tony Bennet, Ne-Yo, Savion Glover and Brandon Flowers of the Killers at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival and last but not least his father Ned Goold, along with performing on the Off-Broadway Musical "Old Hats." Goold is currently finishing his degree in Music at the Juilliard School.
