Benny Green Trio with David Wong and Kenny Washington

Monday, Jun 24, 2013 7:00p
Kuumbwa Jazz Center Santa Cruz, CA

Twenty years after marking his debut as a talented young pianist with the legendary Ray Brown Trio, Benny Green returns again as the leader of his own trio.

Green's keyboard genius has accompanied the vocal artistry of Betty Carter, Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, and replaced the great Gene Harris in bassist Ray Brown's trio.
