Daniel Bennett Group celebrates CD release with Oaks show
The Daniel Bennett Group, fronted by New York saxophonist Daniel Bennett, will perform a special Pittsburgh CD release show on Nov. 17 at the Oaks Theater in Oakmont.
The CD, "Sinking Houseboat Confusion," is described as a provocative mix of jazz, avant-pop and surf rock in a press release.
The show will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the theater at 310 Allegheny River Blvd.
The trio was recently voted "Best New Jazz Group" in New York City Hot House Jazz Magazine.
Bennett studied saxophone at New England Conservatory in Boston, where he performed with the Portland Symphony and the New Hampshire Festival Orchestra. Bennett recently toured Italy and Switzerland with the Armenian world music ensemble Musaner.
Bennett also performs in Broadway and off-Broadway theater productions and composed the musical score for stage adaptations of "Frankenstein" and "Brave Smiles" at the Hudson Guild Theatre in Manhattan. He recently arranged the music for "Whitman at the Whitney," a multimedia theater production featuring dramatic readings of Walt Whitman's poetry at the Whitney Museum in New York City.
Tickets are $12-$17.
