Renowned saxophonist Daniel Bennett is performing his New York City album release concert at the Metropolitan Room (34 West 22nd St, New York, NY) on Sunday, June 28th at 7pm. The Daniel Bennett Group is celebrating the release of their newest album, The Mystery at Clown Castle. Daniel Bennett can be heard throughout the world performing his award-winning compositions on saxophone, flute, clarinet, and oboe. Daniel Bennett will be joined by renowned guitarist Nat Janoff, master percussionist Matthew Feick on drums, and Eddy Khaimovich on electric bass. The Daniel Bennett Group performs Modern Jazz, fused with elements of American Folk and experimental Classical music. The Boston Globe describes Bennett’s music as “a mix of jazz, folk, and minimalism.” The Daniel Bennett Group was recently nominated as “Best Jazz Group” in the Hot House Magazine NYC Jazz Contest. The Daniel Bennett Group has been featured in Boston Globe Magazine, NPR, First Coast Living (NBC), and the Village Voice. The Village Voice raves, “saxophonist Daniel Bennett makes hay with an airy approach that’s buoyant enough to conjure notions of East African guitar riffs and Steve Reich’s pastoral repetition.” The band has released six critically-acclaimed albums: A Nation of Bears, The Legend of Bear Thompson, Peace and Stability Among Bears, Live at the Theatre, Clockhead Goes to Camp, and The Mystery At Clown Castle. Daniel Bennett is also very active in the New York City musical theater scene. Daniel Bennett recently composed the musical score for stage adaptations of Frankenstein and Brave Smiles at the Hudson Guild Theatre in Manhattan. Daniel Bennett recently played woodwinds in Blank! The Musical, the first fully improvised Off-Broadway 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.
