Benny Golson and The Juilliard Jazz Orchestra

last Thursday evening, I heard Benny Golson and The Juilliard Jazz Orchestra perform all his old tunes:

and a World premiere of his new composition, ABOVE AND BEYOND with Victor Goines playing the solo parts.
The conductor and composer, Benny Golson, is 77 years old and he is still very good, healthy, full of humor and life! His orchestral composition is very enjoyable, exciting and full of suprises in the music. The twist and turns in the compositions were very good.
The Juilliard Jazz student musicians were swinging with great rythym and pace. Some great solos by the trumpets, guiter, piano, flugelhorn and trumbones.
I sat on the third row and saw everything so clearly. Simply amazing and a free concert.
I loved the performance, tap my feet, swing my head and made me so happy …
