December 19, 2022
Electric. Acoustic. Author. Educator. Sideman. Composer. Lincoln Goines really does do it all. The multi-faceted performer has made a name for himself playing jazz, pop, and Latin music, all the while collaborating with a celebrated roster of artists that includes Dizzy Gillespie, Paquito D’Rivera, Mike Brecker, Sonny Rollins, and Carly Simon. A longtime faculty member at Berklee College of Music, the California native has contributed to a number of books on bass technique and is the coauthor (with Robby Ameen) of Funkifying the Clave: Afro-Cuban Grooves for Bass and Drums. Lincoln is currently active with several musical projects including Saninde, Le Baby Macho, and the Franceschini/Goines/Ameen Trio. His latest album, The Art of the Bass Choir, featuring bass greats Tom Kennedy, John Patitucci, Victor Wooten, Mike Pope, and Matt Garrison, was released earlier this year.
