Benny Green is a hard bop pianist carrying on the swinging jazz tradition. A former member of Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, Green also learned under the tutelage of Betty Carter, Freddie Hubbard, and Ray Brown. This experience is evident in his playing and leadership. His internationally touring trio is a shining example of first-rate, no-frills hard bop that captures the driving energy of the canon’s best practitioners. This weekend of music will be a great introduction for jazz newcomers as well as an impressive showcase sure to please longtime fans of the music.

Jan-27-20 07:30 PM Benny Benack III: "A Lot of Livin' to Do" Album Release Party

With trumpeter/vocalist Benny Benack III, drummer Ulysses Owens Jr., bassist Yasushi Nakamura, pianist Keelan Dimick, and special guest vocalists Veronica Swift and Alita Moses, and tenor saxophonist Benny Benack Jr.

“For my sophomore album I wanted the music to capture the joy that playing jazz has given me my entire life….Taking influence from some of my favorite trumpeters and vocalists, this record is as much about the cool crooning of Chet Baker as the hard-bop flair of Freddie Hubbard.” - Benny Benack III

Dual-threat trumpeter and singer Benny Benack III celebrates the release of his second album, A Lot of Livin’ to Do. From fast bop burners to slow ballads, the multi-talented 28-year-old is a gifted soloist, a charismatic crooner, and a whole lot in between. Dizzy’s Club was honored to present the release party for Benack’s acclaimed debut album, and now we keep the tradition going with this latest release. He’s always in first-rate musical company (as you’ll hear on the album), and his group at Dizzy’s is sure to be no different. Reserve your seat, and help us make it an album release celebration to remember.

Jan-28-20 07:30 PM James Morrison Quartet

With trumpeter James Morrison, guitarist William Morrison, bassist Harry Morrison, and drummer Patrick Danao.

Australian trumpeter James Morrison is a world-renowned trumpet virtuoso who has played with legends including Ray Brown, Dave Brubeck, Ray Charles, Dizzy Gillespie, Quincy Jones, and Wynton Marsalis. He has also worked with the London Symphony and Philharmonic Orchestras, and he has performed for two United States Presidents and Queen Elizabeth II. This level of popularity and demand started early for Morrison, who made his United States debut at the Monterey Jazz Festival when he was only 16 years old. Thankfully for his many international fans, the brass master still tours regularly with his own groups, and we’re excited to bring him back to Dizzy’s Club for some excellent sets of pure, swinging, jazz.
