Benny Green & Russell Malone

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

Although not an innovator himself..... . yada yada... The reviewer, Scott Yanow, is clearly biased against Benny Green for some reason. What is the need for getting a dig in against this fine young pianist?
Stop it with this initial damning qualificatio n ...Although not an innovator himself What the hell have you ever done you soulless critic? Green in performance finds the inventive exquisite moment and is truly there. Genius, and amazing hard earned skill. But you weren't there were you? Where have you been? Listening to old records?
I've sought out as many russel Malone recordings that I could fine since I heard him play wiyh Dianna Krall.
Benny's trio played a show a few weeks ago at my local jazz festival and it was totally inspiring. I was also fortunate enough to go to a week-long jazz workshop and take masterclasse s from the man and I came away from that with a fierce desire to learn how to play jazz piano and be like Benny. He's awesome.
I saw Benny for the first time about 12 years ago @Bird of Paradise in Ann Arbor,MI with Ray Brown . Would love to see Benny come to Minneapolis and play @ the Dakota.
