Benny Green is performing solo on Nov. 11 at 7:30 pm at the Menlo-Atherton Performing Arts Center. One of the great jazz pianists of his generation, Berkeley-bred Green has had a storied career, beginning with his early affiliations with Betty Carter, Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers, Freddie Hubbard, Oscar Peterson and the Ray Brown Trio.
Benny performs these days mostly with his own trio or larger groups, so this solo performance is a rare and special treat for jazz fans. This program is presented by the Palo Alto Jazz Alliance, a recipient of the Menlo Park Grant for the Arts. Tickets are available online.
