Closing in on 40 solo recordings, Smooth Jazz elder statesman and three-time Grammy nominated pianist/composer David Benoit has been setting standards in the genre since the late 80’s. He’s recorded phenomenal collaborative albums before – most notably, with Russ Freeman, Jane Monheit and Marc Antoine – but takes the concept to an empowering new level on DAVID BENOIT AND FRIENDS, a righteous return to his GRP days vibe. Dazzling from track to track, featuring everything from Bossa to blues, Latin to trad jazz and pop (including covers of smashes by Portugal The Man and Coldplay). Often with symphonic flair, Benoit draws on an cool array of inspirations (including Dave Grusin, Kenny Burrell, and crime novelist Dean Koontz) and has a blast jamming with Antoine, Dave Koz, Peter White, Tim Weisberg, Rick Braun, Vincent Ingala and vocalist Lindsey Webster.
