Benny Golson


Hard Bop

Benny's sound reflects a strong hard bop with dashes of swing. Some of his more famous tunes include 'I Remember Clifford,' 'Stablemates' and 'Are You Real.' He wrote songs in the 60s and 70s for Peggy Lee, Sammy Davis, Jr. and Lou Rawls. Benny has played with Johnny Hodges, Dizzy Gillespie (from 1956-8) and Art Blakey (1959).
