Daniel Bennett Group: New York Nerve

Read "New York Nerve" reviewed by Tyran Grillo


"This is not a pandemic record, but it is," says Daniel Bennett about his latest album. What might come across as a paradoxical statement is, from the multi-instrumentalist and composer's lips, a poignant assessment of his creative turn. “I didn't go on pause at all.
