Benny Golson in Concert

  • U.S. Cellular Stage at the Bijou (map)

The festival opens with tenor sax icon, Benny Golson on Friday, August 28 at US Cellular Stage at the Bijou.  To say that Benny Golson is among the greatest living jazz players in the world may sound like hyperbole.  Yet few jazz musicians can claim to be true innovators and fewer yet can boast of a career that redefines the word “jazz”.   “His playing is always full of surprises,” said University of Tennessee Jazz Studies professor, Keith R. Brown.  “It’s swinging and soulful.  He’s the perfect example of the best of the best in jazz.”
