Synopsis

Product Description
Musical mastermind Benny Golson leads this extraordinary session with fellow Tenor Saxophonists Branford Marsalis, James Carter and Harold Ashby, culminating in the historic, Grammy nominated CD Benny Golson: Tenor Legacy (also available as MP3 download). The stellar rhythm section (Geoff Keezer, Dwayne Burno, & Joe Farnsworth) provides splendid support for the four saxophonists on this album, which is dedicated to honoring the legacy of ten of the all-time greats of the tenor saxophone Lester Young, Coleman Hawkins, Sonny Rollins, Dexter Gordon, John Coltrane, Benny Golson, Stan Getz, Zoot Sims, Ben Webster, and Don Byas. Most appropriately titled, this collection of compositions performed by four outstanding tenor saxophonists pays tribute to a legacy bequeathed to a global culture that cannot be overestimated. Not only do the chosen selections remain standard vehicles for the exploration of improvisatory invention, emotional projection, and the indefinable phenomenon of swing, the musicians who respectively first introduce these tunes to the musical canon are all members of the Jazz pantheon. Benny Golson: Tenor Legacy is a tribute to both these important Jazz compositions and to the influential saxophone players whose sounds inspired a new generation of musicians to explore, create, and participate in the constant reinvention of Jazz.
