Jazz Music Legend Ron Carter Joins Saxophonist Benny Golson’s Quartet For Special Harlem Engagement At Marcus Samuelsson’s Ginny’s Supper Club, February 22-23
Jazz music saxophonist Benny Golson (http://www.BennyGolson.com), composer of scores for such TV shows as M*A*S*H, Mission Impossible, and The Cosby Show and jazz standards including “Along Came Betty,” “Stablemates” and “Killer Joe,” swings into Harlem for a special two-night engagement, featuring legendary jazz music bassist Ron Carter, February 22-23, for sets at 8:00 PM and 10:00 PM each evening, to inaugurate the new Jazz Masters Series at Marcus Samuelsson’s Ginny’s Supper Club (www.ginnyssupperclub.com), 310 Lenox Avenue, between 125th and 126th Street, 212 421-3821, in Harlem, New York City. Presented by G&J Productions (http://www.gjpservices.com), Mr. Golson will be joined by Mike LeDonne on piano (former musical director of the Milt Jackson Quartet), Carl Allen, drums (Artistic Director, Juilliard Jazz) for each of the three nights of jazz performances at Ginny’s Supper Club.
Hailing from Philadelphia, Benny Golson’s illustrious career spans six decades—from his early years with John Coltrane, Dizzy Gillespie and Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers and his work leading The Jazztet, with trumpeter Art Farmer, to his work in Hollywood as an arranger and composer in and for network television.
Jazz bassist Ron Carter (http://www.RonCarter.com), noteworthy for his distinctive sound and style, is one of the most prolific and influential bassists in jazz music – with more than 2,000 album recordings to his credit. Mr. Carter has recorded with jazz luminaries including Miles Davis, Tommy Flanagan, Gil Evans, Lena Horne, Bill Evans, B.B. King, Dexter Gordon, and Wes Montgomery.
Greg Thomas of G&J Production comments: “When in a short time span the jazz world loses Dave Brubeck, an innovative composer such as Butch Morris, and an iconic trumpeter like Donald Byrd, the importance of acknowledging the grand masters such as Benny Golson and Ron Carter becomes even clearer. The two playing together for a run at Ginny’s Supper Club in Harlem becomes a moment of living history not to be missed.”
