NEW MUSIC: Horizon Ahead By Benny Golson
Benny Golson is a Mainstream Jazz great on tenor sax who played with everyone you know, from John Coltrane to Art Blakey, Dizzy Gillespie to Lionel Hampton and Art Farmer. As a young man he moved from Bebop to Hard Bop, and he has composed Jazz music for longer than most of us have been alive. Golson will lead his current band at the 2016 Atlanta Jazz Festival on the Main Stage on Sunday, May 29 at 7:00 p.m. as part of Atlanta's 31 Days of Jazz. He also has a new record out on High Note called Horizon Ahead, and features Pianist Mike LeDonne, Bassist Buster Williams and Drummer Carl Allen. You can hear cuts from Horizon Ahead on Jazz 91.9 WCLK at various times in particular on Serenade To The City, Monday through Friday from 10:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m.
