Benny Golson Quartet: “Three Little Words,” album: Horizon Ahead (2016)

With a release date of April 15, 2016, Horizon Ahead is something new from Benny Golson. Personnel on this one are Golson (tenor saxophone); Mike LeDonne (piano); Buster Williams (bass); and Carl Allen (drums).

As Jack Bowers writes at All*About*Jazz, “saxophonist Benny Golson is one of the last surviving links to the Golden Age of modern jazz, ushered in by the likes of Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Bud Powell, Kenny Clarke and others in the early ’40s.”

At 88 still going strong.
