Benny Benack III has proven to be the rarest of talents; being not only a fiery trumpet player with a stirring command of the post bop trumpet, but also a singer with a sly, mature, naturally expressive delivery. His superb intonation and bracing virtuosity enable him to handle astounding feats of originally composed vocalese.

In early 2020 Benny released 'A Lot of Livin to Do', featuring bassist extraordinaire Christian McBride (whose Grammy-award winning Big Band frequently calls upon Benny in the trumpet section) and drummer/producer Ulysses Owens, Jr., as well as Takeshi Ohbayashi on piano and Rhodes.
