Shimmering Memories of a Mellow Collaborator
Entering the homestretch of the memorial concert “Friends of Jeff Golub” the keyboardist Jason Miles offered an encomium, brief and to the point. “Whatever he did, whether it was smooth or it was blues, there was a commitment,” he said of Mr. Golub, a crisp and stylistically fluid guitarist who died on Jan. 1 at 59. But two of the more affecting moments came from a more solitary place. One had Daniel MacGowan — a neurologist at Mount Sinai Beth Israel who treated and befriended Mr. Golub — belting the Beatles’ “The Long and Winding Road” with an unpolished intensity of feeling that quickly got under the skin.
