HJO Featuring Benny Benack III
On Monday, April 29, 2024 the HJO welcomes double-threat vocalist/trumpeter extraordinaire Benny Benack III. You’re not going to want to miss this show!!
By age 32, Emmy-nominated Trumpeter and Vocalist Benny Benack III has already become a leading voice in Jazz for his generation, while his trademark ebullience onstage assures his audiences he’s got “A Lot of Livin’ to Do” still to come!
His sophomore album sharing that title featured the likes of bass luminary Christian McBride and drummer/producer Ulysses Owens Jr. and even achieved viral online fame w/his vocalese rendition of “Social Call” ft. Veronica Swift that’s been transcribed and covered by singers around the world. He has crooned his way to millions of more listeners alongside groups such as the Grammy-winning “8-Bit Big Band” and YouTube sensation “Postmodern Jukebox”. His third solo album aptly titled “Third Time’s the Charm” ft. fellow stars Emmet Cohen, Peter Bernstein, and Chad LB was released in June 2023 and quickly ascended to #2 on the JazzWeek International Radio Charts.
