Benny Green holds the history of jazz at his fingertips. With decades of experience playing with no less than the most celebrated artists of the last half century, it’s no wonder Green has been hailed as perhaps the most exciting hard-swinging, hard-bop pianist of his time.

An adept lyrical interpreter with tremendous tonal command, Swift has the keen ability to make everything she touches her own. Join us for a hot performance that combines the sophisticated know-how of an established jazz master with the complex sounds of his inventive band-mates, and the riffs and scats of tomorrow’s jazz royalty.
