Benny Green has performed with numerous jazz groups and was selected as the first recipient of the City of Toronto's Glen Gould International Protege Prize. An exciting and hard-swinging pianist in the Bud Powell mold, Benny Green ranks alongside Mulgrew Miller and Donald Brown as one of a number of talented hard-bop keyboard stars to have graduated from Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers training ground. During America's hard-bop revival of the !80s, Green established his own distinctive voice as the leader of a number of bands. Jazz saxophonist Javon Jackson boldly explores new jazz terrain. His band also features Benny Green, Carl Allen and Nat Reeves.
