Benny Golson: Along Came Benny
Why would a senior giant of jazz saxophone and composition take such radically eclectic risks? "Creativity never retires. Anybody who's worth his or her salt never says, I've done this and I've done thatnow I'm finished. Music is open-ended; there is no end to it. Hank Jones put it this way: 'The horizon is always ahead.' That's right. It's perpetual. You want to go on, you don't want to stop."
