Benny Green Trio | Sep 21

Sep 20, 2017

Benny Green possesses the history of jazz at his fingertips. Combine mastery of keyboard technique with decades of real world experience playing with no one less than the most celebrated artists of the last half century, and it’s no wonder Green has been hailed as perhaps the most exciting hard-swinging, hard-bop pianist to ever emerge from Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers.

The "Jazz Muses" Project is built around a collection of compositions written by the ten jazz trumpet heroes who have influenced Al's sound and style to the greatest degree throughout his career, and which are named for (or dedicated to) various female influences (real or alliterative) whom the artist-trumpeters encountered during their illustrious lives. All selections were arranged by Dave Hanson.

The professional Airmen-musicians in The Falconaires follow in a long blue line of talented Air Force Academy bandsmen who are dedicated to serving our great nation and representing the young men and women at the academy training to be officers of character that will lead our Air Force. It is also our distinct privilege to support our veterans and all men and women currently serving around the globe, protecting the freedoms we all enjoy. It is because of these selfless Americans that we are able to share the music and remarkable talents of the Falconaires.
