Benny Golson & Jimmy Heath: Meeting Of The Maestros at 92nd Street Y Jazz in July Festival at 92nd Street Y
It’s a historic occasion when Benny Golson and Jimmy Heath share the stage.
These two tenor sax trailblazers and NEA Jazz Masters go all the way back to 1950s Philadelphia. Their quintessential compositions, such as Golson’s “Whisper Not” and "I Remember Clifford" and Heath’s “C.T.A.” and “Gingerbread Boy,” are featured alongside melodies from the American Songbook canon. Hear them together, with fiery young trumpeter Jeremy Pelt and the world-class rhythm section of Bill Charlap, David Wong and Kenny Washington. Don’t miss this pair of jazz icons in their full musical glory.
92nd Street Y, Lexington Avenue At 92nd Street
