Steve Goodman

Every Tuesday Night <> 7:30 til 11:30





Stephen M. Goodman has had a long, illustrious career as a jazz pianist.  By the age of 18 he had played many a wedding and bar mitzvah, toured the Atlantic with a singles cruise ship, and toured Europe with a Dixieland band.  When not cracking the books at the Wharton School, or serving as Editor-in-Chief of the Law Review at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, Goodman played the Philadelphia jazz spots with his own band. 

After a brief Washington sabbatical, during which he clerked for Justice Bazelon of the U.S. Court of Appeals, and Justice Brennan of the U.S. Supreme Court, Goodman returned to Philadelphia to play the hot jazz clubs and incidentally start a law firm.  He has at different periods performed at the Frog Restaurant Lounge, the Hershey Hotel Bar, the Commissary Piano Bar, the Borgia Café, Raymond Haldeman's, the Cassatt Lounge at the Rittenhouse Hotel.  He has performed at several Concerto Soloist's "Unstrung Heroes" Galas, and has played cocktail piano for the benefit of many non-profit organizations.

His CD's with the "Steve Goodman Trio," produced by DBK Entertainment, have featured jazz re-recreations of musical numbers from Broadway hits, including "Jekyll and Hyde," "Chicago," "42nd Street," and "Phantom of the Opera."  He currently plays at Tuesday night jazz jam sessions at the 23rd Street Café.

Elsewhere, Goodman is a senior partner at the international law firm of Morgan, Lewis & Bockius, and serves as national co-chairman of the firm's emerging business practice group.
