South Florida Jazz presents Benny Green Trio

Dec 3, 2016, 8 PM

Jazz South Florida celebrates 25 years of jazz with Benny Green Trio in Concert. Benny Green (piano), David Wong (acoustic bass) and Rodney Green (drums). Green’s most recent recordings, Live in Santa Cruz (2015) and Magic Beans (2012) (Sunnyside) are examples of his brilliance. Since emerging under the four-year tutelage of Betty Carter, then Art Blakey, Freddie Hubbard and Ray Brown in the 1980s, Benny Green has become a highly regarded pianist and bandleader.

Combining mastery of technique with decades of real world experience, Green has played with the most celebrated artists of the last half century, he has been considered as perhaps the most exciting hard-swinging, hard-bop pianist to ever emerge from Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers.
