Jazz pianist and composer Benny Green began studying classic piano at the age of seven. He began working with some of the genre’s greats like Betty Carter, while he was still in his teens. After working with Carter for four years, Green had the opportunity to play with the late-great American Jazz Hall of Famer, Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers.

In this candid interview with iRock Jazz, Benny Green describes what it was like playing with Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers.
