“this is a definite masterclass on how to play the piano with feeling.” — Jazz World

For three decades, the GRAMMY®-nominated pianist/composer/ arranger David Benoit has reigned supreme as one of the founding fathers of contemporary jazz. In 2010 Benoit received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Smooth Jazz Awards.

Benoit was bitten by the jazz bug after watching a Charlie Brown special on television and listening to the music of Vince Guaraldi in 1965. “I was already a fan of the comic strip,” he says, “but when I heard that jazz piano trio, that was the defining moment when I decided that I wanted to play like Vince Guaraldi.”
