It’s difficult to believe, but nearly 30 years since Benny Green made his first Columbia appearance followed by a number of subsequent Jazz Series appearances – doing so in a variety of configurations. However, it’s been five years since we last presented the pianist. We thought it was time for a reprise visit. Green, at one-time Oscar Peterson’s hand-picked protégé, has long-since evolved and become one of the world’s finest, most lyrical and well-respected pianists. While Green performs with ensembles of all sizes, there is no question that one of his strongest suits is when he leads a trio, which is what he will do this time around – although with a twist.
  On this occasion, Green’s trio is audaciously augmented by vocalist Veronica Swift – a rising star in her mid-20s whose jazz travels are still far closer to the front end than they will undoubtedly be down the line. “’V-Bop’, as Green calls her, “is an epic leader if I’ve ever met one. “[There’s] an incomparable vocal ease and mesmerizing fluency.” The Jazz Series is pleased to welcome the vocalist for the first time.
