A fine all-round player, Goykovich has combined elements from Slavic folk music, both rhythmic and melodic, to produce a highly individual synthesis. His main influences include Roy Eldridge, Dizzy Gillespie, Kenny Dorham, Clifford Brown and Miles Davis.
Very active in Europe during the 1950s, Goykovich went to the United States in 1961 and studied at Berklee College of Music. After that, he played with the bands of Maynard Ferguson (1963-64) and Woody Herman (1964-66). He also collaborated with Mal Waldron and Philly Joe Jones, between others.
Since 1967, Goykovich lived in Europe, leading his own groups, composing, arranging and teaching. He also played with The Kenny Clarke-Francy Boland Big Band until it disbanded in 1973, and co-led a Euro-American 12-piece band with Slide Hampton from 1974-75.
