St. Cecilia Music Center Concert Series -Veronica Swift + Benny Green Trio

The final Jazz Series Concert of the season will be the Benny Green Trio with young rising jazz singer Veronica Swift on March 7, 2019. Veronica Swift will launch her newest album for release in 2018 and the album will feature the great pianist Benny Green and his trio. At age 23, Veronica Swift is now being recognized around the country as one of the top young jazz singers on the scene. In the fall of 2015, she won second place at the prestigious Thelonious Monk Jazz Competition. In 2016, she was asked to perform a concert of her own at the Tribeca Performing Arts Center in New York City and she was a guest artist with Michael Feinstein at Jazz at Lincoln Center.  Benny Green, a veteran of the jazz world possesses the history of jazz at his fingertips. He combines a mastery of keyboard technique with decades of real world experience playing with no one less than the most celebrated artists of the last half century. Benny Green is hailed as perhaps the most exciting hard-swinging, hard-bop pianist to ever emerge from Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers. bennygreenmusic.com/
