Daniel Bennett Jazz Group

New York saxophonist Daniel Bennett has been hailed as one of the most original and unpredictable musical voices of his generation. The Daniel Bennett Group will perform a special album release concert. The band is celebrating the release of their 9th studio album, 'New York Nerve.' The Boston Globe described Bennett's music as, "a mix of Jazz, Folk and Minimalism." The music shifts rapidly from Jazz Fusion to American Folk Music. Daniel Bennett is joined by master percussionist Koko Bermejo (drums/keyboard) and acclaimed bassist Kevin Hailey. Daniel Bennett has been featured in Timeout New York, Baltimore Sun, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, and NPR. The UK Jazz Journal called Bennett "an outspoken voice of hope" during the COVID 19 pandemic. Daniel Bennett Group was recently voted 'Best New Jazz' in Hot House Magazine. The band performs regularly at the Blue Note (NYC), Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club (London) and Zingari Jazz (San Francisco). Daniel Bennett is a touring woodwind clinician and associate director of the New York Jazz Academy in Times Square. Daniel Bennett is also an active woodwind doubler in the New York City theater scene. Bennett orchestrated the music for 'Whitman at the Whitney,' a multimedia theater production at the Whitney Museum. Daniel Bennett played woodwinds in 'Blank! The Musical,' the first fully improvised musical to launch on a national stage. The New York Times called the show, "Witty, Likable and Ludicrous!" Daniel Bennett's theatrical works have strongly shaped his eclectic sound and musical storytelling as a bandleader. Daniel Bennett's genre-bending sound has captivated audiences throughout the world.
