The legendary Benny Golson has a career in jazz that spans 55 years. He's a master tenor saxophonist and has played with the renowned Benny Goodman, Dizzy Gillespie, Lionel Hampton, Earl Bostic and countless others. He's written scores for film and tv including M*A*S*H, Mannix, Mission Impossible, awards shows, and even Bill Cosby's latest TV show.

I had the pleasure of meeting Benny in the airport on a return business trip and was mesmerized by his journey. Not only is he a musician, composer, arranger, and producer but he's a teacher and humanitarian.

I'm excited for this unique opportunity to expose Benny to a whole cadre of new listeners and friends. Join us for this special show!
