If you think you hear a lot of Oscar Peterson in Benny Green, you're right. The young pianist can emulate Peterson's two-fisted, take no prisoners pianism better than anyone (including Gene Harris and Monty Alexander). But in addition to the Peterson thing, Green can also do the Timmons thing, the Ramsey Lewis thing, the Shearing thing, the Monk thing, and just about any other piano thing he wants.
