Inspired by his saxophonist father, Berkeley California native pianist Benny Green embraced jazz at an early age. In his early 20's he toured with jazz legends Betty Carter, Freddie Hubbard, Art Blakey, and Ray Brown before signing a recording contract with Blue Note Records. A few years later he became a protege of pianist Oscar Peterson, recording "Oscar & Benny" for Telarc Records. As a leader Benny's groups have performed in all the major clubs, festivals and concert halls around the world. His most recent recordings, “Happiness” (2017) and “Live in Santa Cruz” (2015) are a return to the kind of swinging straight ahead jazz piano trio playing of which he is now an acknowledged master.
