Barry Goldberg
Barry (* 1942) is a blues and rock keyboardist, songwriter, and record producer. As a teenager in Chicago, Barry sat in with Muddy Waters, Otis Rush, and Howlin' Wolf. He played keyboards with the Paul Butterfield Blues Band backing Bob Dylan during his 1965 newly 'electrified' appearance at the Newport Folk Festival. In 1965, after moving to Chicago to play the blues, Steve Miller and Barry founded the Goldberg-Miller Blues Band. He formed The Electric Flag with Mike Bloomfield in 1967, and later formed the 'Barry Goldberg Reunion' in 1968.
In 1992 he played keyboards with the Carla Olson & Mick Taylor band. In 1994, Goldberg and Saul Davis produced Blue Night by Percy Sledge, which featured Bobby Womack, Steve Cropper, Mick Taylor, Greg Leisz, Bob Glaub, Ed Greene, Mikael Rickfors, with songs written by Rickfors, Gregg Sutton, Pat Robinson, Carla Olson, the Bee Gees, Quinton Claunch, Fats Domino, and Otis Redding. By 1999, Barry both wrote and performed the theme to the Disney Channel original movie Smart House, entitled "The House is Jumpin'". In 2002, he was featured on the Bo Diddley tribute album Hey Bo Diddley - A Tribute!
In 2005-2006, he toured with the 'Chicago Blues Reunion'. Their debut CD reached #2 on the Billboard Blues Chart. In 2012, Stephen Stills recruited Barry in founding a new band dubbed The Rides. Barry appears on the Carla Olson album Have Harmony, Will Travel playing Hammond B-3 organ and piano. The long-awaited film Born in Chicago documenting Chicago blues was released in 2013. Barry had been working on this project for a few years. It includes unique contributions by Bob Dylan, BB King, Buddy Guy, Hubert Sumlin, Eric Burdon, and many others.
Barry's songs have been recorded by many musicians including Rod Stewart, Gladys Knight, Joe Cocker, Steve Miller, Bobby "Blue" Bland, Gram Parsons and B. J. Thomas. Can't Get Enough, the album by The Rides (Stephen Stills, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Barry Goldberg) was nominated for a 2014 Blues Music Award for "Best Rock Blues Album."
Goldberg produced and composed additional musical score to the documentary feature film BANG! The Bert Berns Story. His latest CD, In The Groove, was released on Sunset Blvd Records. The album consists of new and classic instrumentals, and features Barry on Hammond B-3 organ, piano and Wurlitzer piano.
