7 thoughts on “ Benny Green - Lineage ”

  1. Benny Green. An in-demand pianist and educator with a deep understanding of the jazz tradition, Benny Green built upon his early years as a neo-bop prodigy, maturing into a nuanced and sophisticated virtuoso. Influenced early on by the classic bebop style of Thelonious Monk and Bud Powell, Green quickly developed into a formidable player, believably combining the styles of such cornerstone.
  2. One can judge this CD on two different levels. As far as originality goes, pianist Benny Green at age 27 seemed content on his trio date with bassist Christian McBride and drummer Carl Allen to sound like a close relative of Bobby Timmons, Oscar Peterson, and Gene Harris, with touches of Bud Powell; his style at this point in time was quite derivative.8/
  3. As the leader of his own groups, Benny’s recording career began with two albums for the Dutch label Criss Cross: Prelude () and In This Direction (). In Green started recording for Blue Note: Lineage (), Greens (), Testifiyin’ (), That’s Right!
  4. 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.
