Benny Golson

Benny Golson CDs, Downloads and DVDs on Arkadia JazzVirtuoso saxophonist and renowned composer Benny Golson gives full expression to the refined poetic temperament and matchless musical intelligence, which have made him a living jazz legend.  Raised with an impeccable musical pedigree, Golson has played in the bands of world famous Benny Goodman, Dizzy Gillespie, Lionel Hampton, Earl Bostic and Art Blakey and co-led the legendary Jazztet with fellow legends Art Farmer and Curtis Fuller. Few jazz musicians can claim to be true innovators and even fewer can boast of a performing and recording career that literally redefines the term "jazz". Benny Golson has made major contributions to the world of jazz with such jazz standards as: "Killer Joe," "I Remember Clifford," "Along Came Betty," "Stablemates," "Whisper Not," "Blues March," "Five Spot After Dark," and "Are you Real?" amongst countless others.
While living in Hollywood,
Benny wrote scores and themes for, among other things, M*A*S*H, Mission Impossible, Room 222, The Partridge Family, Mannix, and It Takes A Thief, as well as dozens of melodies for television commercials. He also did arrangements for Lou Rawls, Eartha Kitt, Connie Francis, Ella Fitzgerald, Eric Burdon, Nancy Wilson, Sammy Davis Jr. and Diana Ross, to name a few.
Benny made his initial recording for Arkadia in 1996, and as of today his Arkadia releases number six, including his stunning 2001 release One Day, Forever, which marked Benny's collaboration with the legendary Shirley Horn on the title track and the debut of his classical piano composition "On Gossamer Wings", performed by pianist Lara Downes.
In 2007, Arkadia released a beautiful CD compilation called The Many Moods of Benny Golson which features four previously unreleased performances, and the DVD The Whisper Not Tour, recorded live at Jazz Fest Berlin and featuring Art Farmer, Curtis Fuller, Geoff Keezer, Dwayne Burno, Joe Farnsworth and special guest vocalist Jon Hendricks.
It was released in conjunction with a compilation CD called The Many Moods of Benny Golson, which showcases the highlights of Benny's output on Arkadia and features four previously unreleased tracks.
