Daniel Bennett Group
New York saxophonist Daniel Bennett has been hailed as one of the most original and unpredictable musical voices of his generation. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette describes Bennett's music as, "modern jazz, surf rock and avant-pop." Timeout New York chronicled Daniel Bennett's pioneering spirit during COVID-19, highlighting Bennett's leadership during the global pandemic. Sammy Stein, international editor for the Jazz Journalists Association, calls Bennett, "an outspoken voice of hope." Daniel Bennett's 2021 album release, 'New York Nerve,' was conceived outside under snow-covered heat lamps at New York City jazz clubs. "Outdoor music was our thing this year. The earth was our stage," says Daniel Bennett. The album features Bennett on saxophone, flute and clarinet. The bandleader is joined by bassist Kevin Hailey, guitarist Assaf Kehati, and Koko Bermejo on drums. The quartet was the first jazz group to record in Manhattan after the studios re-opened in 2020. The Daniel Bennett Group performs regularly at the Blue Note (NYC), Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club (London) and Herb Alpert's Vibrato Club (LA). Bennett is a touring clinician and associate director of the New York Jazz Academy in Times Square. Daniel Bennett recently 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 influenced his eclectic sound and musical storytelling abilities as a bandleader.
