Saturday, March 15: Benny Golson Quartet

Benny Golson, who’s contributed several tunes to the standard repertoire of jazz music, has been playing sax and writing music for more than 55 years, refining his style and evolving with the genre. The cool laid-back sound he’s known for has that head-bobbing, finger-snapping feel that makes you want to lean back and relax. The standard “I Remember Clifford,” is a blue elegy that holds a bittersweet mystery. Another classic Golson hit, “Stablemates,” opens with a jerky drum solo that drops into a sparse quirky melody. At 80 years old, Golson has definitely aged well, so get to Night Town tonight to hear a masterful performance by him and his quartet. (Gonzalez) $20-$30
