Twenty years after Benny Green recorded Bass Face at Kuumbwa, marking his debut as a talented young pianist with the legendary Ray Brown Trio, he returns to record again, this time as the leader of his own trio. His long-time drummer, Kenny Washington, a respected "keeper of the hard bop flame," and ace bassist David Wong, demonstrate a flair for tasteful swinging that burns brightly under Green's own flawless, two-handed technique and imaginative, one-of-a-kind improvisations. Green's keyboard genius has accompanied the vocal artistry of Betty Carter, served in the ranks of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, and, ultimately, replaced the great Gene Harris in bassist Ray Brown's trio. Don't miss this milestone two-day event culminating in a Live at Kuumbwa CD!
