Benny Benack III with Full Spectrum Jazz
Trumpeter and singer Benny Benack III has proven to be a rare talent. He is a fiery trumpet player with a stirring command of the postbop trumpet vernacular in the vein of Kenny Dorham and Blue Mitchell. And in addition, he is a singer with a sly, mature, naturally expressive delivery in the post-Sinatra mold. Benny performs standards and his own astute songs with a thrilling sense of showmanship. His superb intonation and bracing virtuosity enable him to handle astounding feats of originally composed vocalese (complex solos with written lyrics). And he’s a highly capable pianist as well.
