Benny Golson is a legendary composer, arranger, lyricist, producer, whose tenor playing has continued to evolve with time, redefining the term "jazz" along the way.  Raised with an impeccable musical pedigree, Golson has played in the bands of world-famous Benny Goodman, Dizzy Gillespie, Lionel Hampton, and Art Blakey, among others.  

He is the only living jazz artist to have written 8 standards for jazz repertoire. Golson has recorded more than 30 albums for many recording companies in the United States and Europe under his own name, and innumerable ones with other major artists. A prodigious writer, Golson has written well over 300 compositions. He is also passionate about teaching jazz to young and old alike, leading workshops and clinics throughout the country. 

He has made scores of recordings but has also composed and arranged music for Count Basie, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Sammy Davis Jr., Mama Cass Elliott, Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie, Benny Goodman, Lionel Hampton, Shirley Horn, David Jones and the Monkees, Quincy Jones, Peggy Lee, Carmen McRae, Anita O'Day, Itzhak Perlman, Oscar Peterson, Lou Rawls, Mickey Rooney, Diana Ross, The Animals (Eric Burden), Mel Torme, George Shearing, Dusty Springfield, among others.

His prolific writing includes scores for hit TV series and films such as M*A*S*H, Mannix, Mission Impossible, Mod Squad, Room 222, Run for Your Life, The Partridge Family, The Academy Awards, and more.

Golson will be joined by internationally acclaimed artists Ron Mahdi on bass, Ralph Peterson on drums, and Hey Rim Jeon on piano. We are honored to have him at Wellesley for an intimate concert.
