Jazz Up Close: Benny Golson on December 11
Join Maureen Malloy from 6 to 8 pm for the second installment of the Jazz Up Close series from the Kimmel Center, celebrating "Killer Joe" himself, Benny Golson. Philadelphia-born Golson is known worldwide as a true jazz innovator - as a sax player and as a composer. He's also the only living artist to create eight jazz standards.
This show will have very special performers: The Berklee Global Jazz Institute accompanied by horn masters Robin Eubanks, Bill Pierce, and Brian Lynch performing new interpretations of pieces from Benny Goldson's catalogue. The show will also include an intermission artist chat with series curator Danilo Perez and Golson.
