Emmet Cohen’s mission is to celebrate the last remaining legendary jazz artists from an era long gone, by documenting, featuring, and preserving their artistry and excellence in the later stages of their careers. As the producer of the Masters Legacy Series, Cohen has released two acclaimed recordings including Volume 1 with Jimmy Cobb and Volume 2 with Ron Carter. Subsequent recordings are scheduled to follow.
Benny Golson is a multi-talented and internationally famous jazz legend. He is a composer, arranger, lyricist, producer and tenor saxophonist of world note. Raised with an impeccable musical pedigree, Golson has played in the bands of world famous Benny Goodman, Dizzy Gillespie, Lionel Hampton, Earl Bostic and Art Blakey. Few jazz musicians can claim to be true innovators and even fewer can boast of a performing and recording career that literally redefines the term “jazz”. He has recorded over 30 albums for many recording companies in the United States and Europe under his own name and innumerable ones with other major artists.
