Benny Green possesses the history of jazz at his fingertips. Combine mastery of keyboard technique with decades of real world experience playing with no one less than the most celebrated artists of the last half century, and it’s no wonder Green has been hailed as perhaps the most exciting, hard-swinging, hard-bop, pianist to ever emerge from Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers.

After a short stint with Bobby Watson, Green worked with Betty Carter between 1983 and 1987. Afterwards, at the age of twenty-four, Benny Green joined Art Blakey’s band. He remained a Jazz Messenger through late 1989, at which point he began working with Freddie Hubbard’s quintet. In 1993 Green replaced Gene Harris in Ray Brown’s Trio, working with the veteran bass player until 1997. From 1997 on, Benny resumed his freelance career, leading his own trios, accompanying singers like Diana Krall, and concentrating in his solo piano performances.

As a leader of his own groups, Benny’s recording career began with Criss Cross, then he made seven albums for Blue Note before moving to Telarc for six more titles, including the acclaimed Oscar & Benny with Oscar Peterson. Now signed to Sunnyside Green presents his latest trio recording with the Washingtons (unrelated), Peter and Kenny: "They understand what I'm reaching for...I compose with them in mind. It's a tremendous pleasure to play with these gentlemen, and I feel that they bring out my best."
