Alex Goodman w/ the Epoque String Quartet

presents My Love With You Always

My Love With You Always is a new collection of works by guitarist and composer Alex Goodman. Goodman, considered "one of the most promising talents of his jazz generation" (JazzTimes) and "one of New York's most vital young guitarists" (Jazziz), now presents his most personal and ambitious project. The pieces for string quartet, guitar and bass are a culminating work that explores new paths in composed chamber music with improvisation.

The album was written with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts during a challenging time. In 2021, Valerie Quinn, Alex's wife and partner of nearly 18 years, was diagnosed with cancer. From 2021 to 2023, the disease was inextricably intertwined with his life. This music was composed during an extended period of new perspectives, priorities and responsibilities. The program includes revisions of pieces from throughout Goodman's career and new compositions that can be expected to have immense emotional impact.

My Love With You Always uniquely combines Goodman's diverse skills as a composer and guitarist. It is compelling, intricate, passionate and thoughtful music, deeply connected to jazz and classical traditions.
It's for Valerie Quinn. It reflects Goodman's broad musical concept with a creative new sound. This 2024 European tour will be the premiere of these very personal pieces.
