In this memorable live concert CD, entitled Benny Golson: Up Jumped Benny (also available as a MP3 download), virtuoso 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.

“One of the best things happening in jazz today is the bandstand combination of past masters and talented whipper-snappers. When everything gets right, what results is music that has both the reflective substance of time spent at the craft and the ambitious bite of focused youth.  We hear that phenomenon on this recording, where Benny Golson has surrounded himself with youngsters. This is good for him and good for them. He can count on their energy and and they can count on his knowledge. This is how the culture of jazz is most truly passed on.


The rhythm section of Kevin Hays, Dwayne Burno, and Carl Allen is a triangle of serious young talent. Each of these men knows his instrument and is well aware of the precedents set by his artistic ancestors.  The leader picked the right guys. They listen to each other and they listen to him. They know how to catch a groove and hold on to it. And, like all masters of the game, Benny Golson knows just what to do with what they provide.”                                                                                                                                              - Stanley Crouch         


Supported by an impressive trio of young stars, Kevin Hays (piano), Dwayne Burno (bass), and Carl Allen (drums), Golson's mellow tenor saxophone wonderfully explores this combination of his timeless standards and recent compositions entitled Benny Golson: Up Jumped Benny.
