Great interview - I had the pleasure and honour of working with Benny a few years ago, and he really is a gentleman as well as being a piece of living jazz history

Benny and my dad Elmon Wright were tight buddies in the Earl Bostic's band. He did a residency at Yoshi's in Oakland a couple of years ago, treated me like a king, master tenor saxophonist, writer, arranger, actor, and story teller
