Central Park West

by Susan Goodman

The soulful sounds of Susan Goodman (Sooz) on tenor and soprano saxophones, and her lyrical interpretations of classic jazz standards and lesser known gems--from Jobim to Coltrane to (the unexpected) Steve Wonder -- are a total listening pleasure.

Album Notes
Tenor and soprano saxophonist and flutist Susan Goodman has performed as a jazz artist in and around Boston, New York, Atlantic City, and Philadelphia for many years. Initially a student of European classical flute music, Susan was blown away into the world of jazz upon discovering such ear-opening recordings as Eric Dolphy’s Ironman, John Coltrane’s Ballads, and Wayne Shorter’s Native Dancer. As a student of Jerry Bergonzi and Joe Allard in Boston, Susan fell in love with the classic jazz repertoire of the masters. Her long awaited debut jazz CD, Central Park West, features her interpretations of many of those gems, including Central Park West (Coltrane), Virgo (Shorter), and Triste (Antonio Carlos Jobim). Of the title cut, Temple University's WRTI host Bob Perkins says "Ms. Goodman plays the jazz standard about as well as Coltrane wrote it." Many listeners may know Susan as Sooz, writer and producer of several jazz and latin-inspired CDs for children, including Stand Up! Speak Out!, which evolved into a school assembly program on prejudice and bullying. Susan is very happy to now broaden the scope of her recordings and performances and focus on the jazz roots that ground and inspire her most. Please visit for more information.
