Benny Green Trio in New Mexico! A premier!

“For a quarter-century, Benny Green has been deemed one of the most

 

technically superb jazz pianists of his generation.” - New York Daily News

Benny Green possesses the history of jazz at his fingertips. Combine mastery of keyboard technique with decades of real world experience playing with no one less than the most celebrated artists of the last half century, and it’s no wonder Green has been hailed as perhaps the most exciting hard-swinging, hard-bop pianist to ever emerge from Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers. Accompanied by drummer, Kenny Washington and bassist, Dezron Douglas, the Chicago Tribute raves, “somehow, these three musicians conjured the blues-swing aesthetic, startling contrasts in dynamics and whisper-soft gestures we associate with the Basie style, but distilled to chamber-music dimensions. Now that’s a feat.”

Born in New York in 1963, Benny Green grew up in Berkeley, California, and began classical piano studies at the age of seven. Influenced by his father, a tenor saxophonist, his attention soon turned to Jazz. Benny never looked back and never stopped learning as his blossoming talents, supported by mentors such as Walter Bishop, Jr. and others, plus his love for the music propelled him to the upper strata of jazz luminaries.
