Additional Information

In February 2012, we were proud to present Benny Green in his Jazz Standard debut as a leader – and this week, the gifted Bay Area pianist returns for another rare East Coast appearance. Benny was still in his teens when he be­gan working with trumpeter Eddie Henderson; after moving to New York in 1982, he worked with singer Betty Carter, Art Blakey & the Jazz Messengers, and Freddie Hubbard. In 1993, Oscar Peterson chose Benny as the first recipient of the City of Toronto’s Glen Gould International Protégé Prize in Music. That same year, Green replaced Gene Harris in the Ray Brown trio, working with the veteran bass player until 1997. Since that time, Benny has maintained a freelance career, leading his own trios and honing his beautifully expressive solo piano performances. He has participated in over 100 recording sessions, including Betty Carter’s Grammy Award–winning Look What I Got; his collabo­ration with Oscar Peterson entitled Oscar & Benny; and his own albums as a leader including seven discs for Blue Note and 2002’s sparkling solo piano set Green’s Blues.“Benny Green could be the monster pianist of the 21st century!” − Joanne Brackeen
