Benito Gonzalez Trio at Frankie’s
February 29 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm$30
Born into a family of Venezuelan folk musicians, jazz pianist Benito Gonzalez has always had a deep-rooted appreciation for pastimes and traditions. Today, as a rising star of one of America’s finest musical traditions, Gonzalez has come to his current status by following in the footsteps of jazz’s ancestral forebears. To date, he has shared the stage with heavy hitters like Christian McBride, Roy Hargrove, Antonio Sanchez, T.K. Blue, and Nicholas Payton, and has garnered critical acclaim for his work on Kenny Garrett’s Grammy-nominated album ‘Seeds from the Underground’. The fusion of world rhythms and straight-ahead jazz makes this passionate performer an audience favorite all over the world.
