I recently did another shoot with the great Benny Golson, whose life has been so full achievements it is hard to list them all. I always wanted to know how he came up with the tune "Killer Joe", his best known tune. Benny told me he was just messing around with 2 chords on the piano at his mom's house. There were actually 2 other melodies for those changes he composed before the one that came to be know as "Killer Joe". Shot at Smoke, NYC with Portra 160 and strobes.
