Now's the Time: Benny Golson
It’s astounding that the saxophonist playing alongside Lee Morgan, Bobby Timmons, Jymie Merritt and Art Blakey in the embedded video from 1958 continues to spread his swinging message in appearances around the world. Benny Golson, 90, was the hippest, smartest and funniest person in the room during a master class session at Johnson County Community College yesterday afternoon. He performs with the Kansas City Jazz Orchestra at Helzberg Hall on Friday, October 11.
