New York saxophonist Daniel Bennett spends a great deal of time on the west coast. The Daniel Bennett Group plays a three-night residency at Zingari Ristorante & Jazz Room (501 Post St, San Francisco, CA) on September 9, 10 and 11 (6pm and 9pm sets). The group is celebrating the release of their new album, ‘New York Nerve.’ Daniel Bennett will be joined by renowned bassist Kevin Hailey and master percussionist Koko Bermejo on drums and keyboard. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette described 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. The UK Jazz Journal called 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. The Daniel Bennett Group was the first jazz ensemble to record in Manhattan after 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.
