Hard-bop jazz designer who gained acknowledgement as an associate of Betty Carter’s music group and Artwork Blakey’s Jazz Messengers. He began monitoring traditional piano when he was seven and worked well within a quintet with Eddie Henderson. He started leading the Benny Green Trio in 1991. He created a like for jazz by hearing his father’s record collection while developing up. It didn’t harm that his dad was also a jazz tenor saxophonist. His design was often in comparison to Bud Powell.
