    Toronto raised guitarist Alex Goodman has been in NYC for the last 3.5 years, and has a new recording called Border Crossing.

    Winner of the 2014 Montreux Jazz Festival Guitar Competition, Alex’s new album is a  compilation of tunes he wrote for an eclectic mix of instruments including voice, vibraphone, tuba, guitar and percussion.

    Goodman first moved to New York to pursue a masters degree at the Manhattan School of Music. "Basically the entire history of jazz has revolved around this city, so it's kind of central to the character of New York," he says.

    "I was in Harlem, basically next door to where Duke Ellington lived and Count Basie lived. You kind of feel you're in the centre of it a little bit, and you feel very close to where so many things happened, which is really exciting. Basically the entire history of jazz has revolved around this city, so it's kind of central to the character of New York," he says.
