Benny Golsonhas been at the top of jazz for over half a century. He has played in leading bands like that of Benny Goodman, Dizzy Gillespie and Art Blakey (just to name a few) and written numbers like Along Came Betty, Blues March and I Remember Clifford which have now become standards. His career spans most of the post-war jazz era. Since the fifties, his unique sax sound has been heard on classic albums like Moanin' and on over thirty recordings made under his own name. The saxophonist, composer and arranger has written more than three hundred songs and played with everyone who matters. Moreover, Golson (83) enjoys working with international musicians. The jazz legend will be appearing at the North Sea Jazz Festival with formidable Dutch names: Rob van Bavel on piano, Joris Teepe on bass and John Engels on drums.
