Benny Green

Although not yet an innovator himself, Benny Green has managed to combine the styles of Bobby Timmons, Wynton Kelly, Gene Harris, and especially Oscar Peterson in his playing; his fast octave runs are often wondrous. He grew up in Berkeley and played as a teenager with Joe Henderson and Woody Shaw. After moving to New York, he spent important periods with Betty Carter (1983-1987) and Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers (1987-1989), becoming quite well-known during the latter association. In addition to working with Freddie Hubbard, Green popped up in many bop-oriented settings for a few years before joining Ray Brown's Trio in 1992. At the same time, he has worked with his own trio, which originally included Christian McBride and Carl Allen. When Oscar Peterson was asked in 1992 to name his protégé for a concert, Green was his choice. Benny Green has recorded for Criss Cross and Blue Note in addition to his work with Ray Brown on Telarc and his earlier Blakey dates. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

I wonder what it takes in order to be considered an innovator by this reviewer. He sounds innovative to me.
He was GREAT ! at Port Townsend !
Me too, saw him at Port Townsend. Never heard of him before then, but then I never heard of most jazz folks after 1963.

just saw him with the Monterey Jazz Festival touring group in Eugene. Great show and my first introduction to Benny Green. He looks like he's 25 yrs.old :)
Best jazz artist.

Very funny that the only other post I see here is from the Port Townsend Jazz Fest. I live in PT, and was at that concert too. I'd never heard of him before, but he was wonderful!
