He has  first-rate piano chops combined with his  'cool', urbane vocal styling provide good music for grown-ups. A family affair, his quartet features the highly talented brothers Rickie Petersom (David Sanborn) on the B3 organ and Billy Peterson (Dave King Trio) on bass along with Ben's son Leo is on drums. They will perform at the Green Mill in Chicago on Friday, September 12th and Saturday, September 13th.
