From Benny Green's obituary on the BBC News website:
- Green was an accomplished saxophonist and a successful author who wrote biographies of Fred Astaire and PG Wodehouse. ...
- Green was taught the saxophone by his father and earned his living with it for 20 years, with bandleaders of the calibre of Ronnie Scott and Kenny Baker.

To users of goodwill
"Radio presenter for 15 years
But Green was perhaps best known as presenter of a programme on BBC Radio Two for 15 years, which focused on a period between 1930 and 1960 when musicals, both on stage and screen, were great box office and jazz was king. "(FROM: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/118354.stm - B.G. well known in Britain as journalist, and very well known and liked in Britain as broadcaster. Very few Britons will know him as a musician of any kind.
Wikipedia:Categorization page says:
When to use categories
Categories should be on major topics that are likely to be useful to someone reading the article. Article: Michael Jackson Useful category: Category:Pop singers Not useful: Category:Musicians whose first name starts with M
Questions to ask to know if a category is the appropriate tool:
Is it possible to write a few paragraphs or more on the subject of a category, explaining it? If you go to the article from the category, will it be obvious why it's there? Is the category subject prominently discussed in the article? If the answer to either of these questions is no, then a category is probably inappropriate.
An article will often be in several categories. Restraint should be used, however — categories become less effective the more there are on a given article."

A different Benny Green
I wanted to mention there's also a different Benny Green who is an American jazz pianist.
Green was a prolific author and editor, so I've started a Bibliography section, which I know to be incomplete. Anyone with more information (e.g. who owns one of his books with a list of other titles in it) please add or amplify my entries Chrismorey (talk) 01:55, 7 February 2015 (UTC)
