Benny Green -piano trio/ feat. Veronica Swift -voc
Featuring:

Veronica Swift vocals

Brilliant pianist, Benny Green possesses the history of jazz at his fingertips. His mastery of keyboard technique combined with decades of real world experience playing with the most celebrated artists of the last half century, and its no wonder Green has been hailed as perhaps the most exciting hard-swinging, hard-bop pianist to ever emerge from Art Blakeys Jazz Messengers. All About Jazz

Green is the unconditional bearer of the torch and guardian of a legacy handed down to him, personally, by his musical mentors: Art Blakey, Freddie Hubbard and Ray Brown. His efforts to expand upon the language of the classical jazz canon have placed him not only among the best interpreters but also among the vanguard of musicians keeping jazzs evolution going. New York Times

The music of Benny Green is one of warmth and taste exemplified by his choice of 23-year-old vocalist, Veronica Swift. Veronica is the child of jazz vocalist Stephanie Nakasian and the late bebop pianist Hod OBrien. Swift has already appeared at Lincoln Center, Telluride Jazz Festival, Blues Alley, The Jazz Cruise, and Birdland. And has performed with Jon Hendricks, Annie Ross, Esperanza Spalding, Joe Lovano, Paquito dRivera, and many other established jazz artists. JazzIs

Upon hearing her sing the JazzTimes declared... Veronica is a master class on space and dynamics and an adept lyrical interpreter with tremendous tonal command. Its not often you hear one so young interpret the sounds of a seasoned jazz performer and make everything she touches her own thats Veronica Swift!" JazzTimes
