Benny Golson's 80th Birthday Party Is 30JAN2009

The great jazz tenorist, Benny Golson, will be celebrating his 80th Birthday at the Chicago Symphony Center on Friday, January 30th, 2009...and you're invited. He is a legendary composer, arranger and musician. His tuneful gems like "I Remember Clifford", "Whisper Not", "Killer Joe", and "Blues March" are enduring favorites in the Great American jazz songbook. Golson will lead an all-star version of his Jazztet, the legendary band he founded in 1959 with the late Art Farmer. Opening the program will be pianist Mulgrew Miller, whom I have caught on several occasions at The Jazz Showcase and Andy's Jazz Club, both located in downtown Chicago. A list of the musicians to be featured for both Golson's JAZZTET and Miller's TRIO can be found below:

Benny Golson, tenor saxophone
Eddie Henderson, trumpet
Steve Davis, trombone
Mike LeDonne, piano
Buster Williams, bass
