Penn Ave Artist in Residency
Our tribute to local jazz legends continues with a celebration the life and legacy of legendary vocalist and guitarist, George Benson. Award-winning percussionist and icon, Roger Humphries and the RH Factor traverse audiences through a musical journey in preservation of the rich jazz histories of Pittsburgh. Born and raised in the Hill-district of Pittsburgh, Benson has often been referred to as a child prodigy and first came to prominence in the 1960s, playing soul jazz with Jack McDuff and others. Benson launched a successful solo career, becoming most known for his alternating practices between jazz, pop, R&B, and scat singing helping to shape today’s diverse sounds in music.
