Legend in every sense of the word, Benny Golson is one of a few jazzmen whose achievements as a composer equal his accomplishments as a saxophonist.
As a player, Golson remains an awesome modern mainstream improviser, able to craft captivating and emotion-laden melodic lines while sailing through the chord changes with the ease afforded by his ultra sharp composer's ear.' - David Franklin, JazzTimes
This DVD features far more than just the genius of Golson. Performing alongside Benny in this timeless, uncut concert is a plethora of talent
Art Farmer, in his last live recorded video performance with Golson & Curtis Fuller (original members of the historic Jazztet), and the man Time Magazine called 'the James Joyce of Jazz,' vocalist extraordinaire, Jon Hendricks. After writing the classic 'Whisper Not,' for Dizzy Gillespie's Big Band, Benny's reputation flourished. Working with talent such as Quincy Jones, Lou Rawls, Connie Francis, Ella Fitzgerald, Nancy Wilson, Sammy Davis Jr. and Diana Ross, Golson also penned numerous standards such as 'Killer Joe' and 'I Remember Clifford.' Whether leading Philadelphia's Columbus Avenue jam sessions, playing with fellow stars such as John Coltrane, or in a Hollywood recording studio writing the scores for classic American television shows such as M*A*S*H, The Cosby Show and Mission Impossible, Jazz's elder statesman Benny Golson is simply remarkable.
