Benny in 2006Welcome, friends!
It gives me so much pleasure to welcome you to my official website. As you know, I started my career in jazz about 65 years ago. I was privileged "to cut my teeth" with the renowned Benny Goodman, Dizzy Gillespie, Lionel Hampton, Earl Bostic and Art Blakey. Travelling all over the United States, Europe, Asia and South America, I have been playing the music I love so much.
