    Sacramento State's top big band and one of our top student combos perform as part of the annual Festival of the Arts, with guest pianist Benny Green. Green grew up in Berkeley, California, and joined Art Blakey's band in New York in 1987. In late 1989 he began working with trumpeter Freddie Hubbard's quintet. In 1993 Oscar Peterson chose Benny as the first recipient of the City of Toronto's Glen Gould International Protégé Prize in Music. That year, Green replaced Gene Harris in Ray Brown's Trio, working with the veteran bass player until 1997. From 1997 on, Benny resumed his freelance career, leading his own trios, accompanying singers like Diana Krall, and concentrating in his solo piano performances.

    The concert is part of the University’s Festival of the Arts.
