Bennie Green was mostly of the trombonists from the 1950s who played in a method not influenced by J.J. Johnson (Costs Harris was another). His witty audio and full shade looked backwards towards the golf swing era however was available to the impact of R&B. After playing locally in Chicago, he was using the Earl Hines Orchestra during 1942-1948 (aside from two years within the armed forces). Green obtained some popularity for his use Charlie Ventura (1948-1950) before signing up for Earl Hines’ little group (1951-1953). Then led his very own group through the entire 1950s and ’60s, using such sidemen as Cliff Smalls, Charlie Rouse, Eric Dixon, Paul Chambers, Louis Hayes, Sonny Clark, Gildo Mahones, and Jimmy Forrest. Green documented regularly being a head for Prestige, Decca, Blue Take note, Vee-Jay, Period, Bethlehem, and Jazzland during 1951-1961, although only 1 further program (a matchup with Sonny Stitt on Cadet in 1964) occurred. Bennie Green was with Duke Ellington for a couple a few months in 1968-1969 and moved to NEVADA, where he spent his last years employed in resort rings, although he do emerge to try out quite well on the 1972 Newport Jazz Celebration and in NY jam sessions.

|2||Although well-known as a jazz musician and as an occasional broadcaster, music journalist and lyric writer, Benny Green was not known for having much interest in the cinema, so it was a surprise when, in late 1972, he was made film critic of the prestigious British humor magazine, "Punch". He replaced Richard Mallett, one of Britain's most eminent critics, who had held this post for over 30 years. Mallett, who had a passionate love of films, had not expected to be dismissed and was greatly upset - so much so that when he died, only a few weeks later, in a street accident, a rumor went around that he had committed suicide. (There is, however, no evidence to suggest that this was the case). His admirers were angered by Green's columns in the magazine, which clearly revealed, not only his indifference to the cinema, but how little he knew about it. He left the job before the end of the decade.|
