Orquestra de Jazz do Algarve invites Benny Golson & Dena DeRose
The Algarve Jazz Orchestra, led by trumpeter Hugo Alves, invites two unforgettable jazz names to an iconic concert, American saxophonist Benny Golson, who at age 90 is a true jazz legend: a venerable tenor, a born storyteller and one of the world’s foremost jazz composers, who has always remained ahead of his time. He has written more than 300 compositions, including the iconic Whisper Not and I Remember Clifford. Benny Golson played with the cream of jazz such as Dizzy Gillespie and Art Blakey. Benny Golson marks jazz through generations and this will be his first time in the Algarve.
In piano and voice, the author of 10 acclaimed original albums, Dena DeRose is considered one of the best jazz pianists in the world of her generation. The quality of her work has already been nominated for Grammy’s.
A concert that will surely be memorable!
