Benny Green
Benny Green Trio

Inspired by his saxophonist father, Berkeley California native pianist Benny Green embraced straight-ahead jazz at an early age. In his young 20s 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 and became one of the only pianists to ever record with Oscar Peterson: their album "Oscar and Benny" was released on Telarc Records. With the release of his 2018 album "Then and Now", Benny celebrates his 20th record release as bandleader, incorporating new textures into his classic piano-trio format and truly taking his place as a giant of modern bebop music. The acclaimed Benny Green Trio has performed at major clubs, festivals and concert halls around the world, and now celebrates Benny's birthday week at Birdland Jazz Club in early April of 2019.
