Benny Green Trio at the Kuumbwa

June 8, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$25 – $30

Benny Green’s keyboard genius has accompanied the vocal artistry of Betty Carter, served in the ranks of Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, and replaced the great Gene Harris in the trio of bass legend Ray Brown. His current trio features ace bassist David Wong and Rodney Green on drums. Despite flirtations with other styles of music, Green remains a respected “keeper of the hard bop flame,” demonstrating a flair for tasteful swinging that burns brightly under his own flawless, ambidextrous technique and imaginative, one-of-a-kind improvisations. Live in Santa Cruz, is Green’s latest CD, an eagerly awaited release recorded live in 2013-14 at Kuumbwa Jazz.
