Benny Benack III

At the age of 28, Pittsburgh-born, New York-based Jazz trumpeter & singer Benny Benack III has quickly established himself as one of the most versatile and virtuosic voices of his generation. Hailed by the New York Times as “a charismatic young trumpeter who maintains an earnest sideline as a singer”, Benack has a knack for delighting audiences with panache, in the spirit of classic crooners like Sinatra & Mel Tormé, with a nod to legendary trumpet showmen Louis Armstrong & Dizzy Gillespie. Equally comfortable in both Jazz and Pop settings, Benack has worked with some of the greatest acts in music today, touring domestically as a trumpet soloist with Josh Groban, Ben Folds, fashion icon Isaac Mizrahi, as well as European engagements with Jazz Bass extraordinaire Christian McBride

Catching Drift

Featuring the music of Benny Benack III
Duration: 7:07

Featuring heavyweight solos from Benack and his band, Catching Drift is a studio track with an outsized, live show feel. The triple-threat Benack has assembled one of the best bands in New York for his forthcoming LP, and he absolutely unleashes them here on this original composition. “Catching Drift is midnight at Smalls,” explains Benack. “That New York energy. I knew I wanted to feature Chad Lefkowitz-Brown, because I knew it would be a great vehicle for him to go nuts. It’s one of my main vehicles for trumpet playing and instrumental music on the album.”

Benny Benack III: Third Time's The Charm

Read "Third Time's The Charm" reviewed by Jack Bowers


While it remains to be seen whether rising star Benny Benack III's third album as leader is a charm (that is up to the listener), it is definitely a charmer, with delightful turns by trumpeter (and vocalist) Benack and pianist Emmet Cohen complementing stellar performances by a number of well-known and talented guest artists.
