Description

David Benoit began his career as a music director and conductor for Lainie Kazan in 1976 before moving on to similar roles with singer/actresses Ann-Margret and Connie Stevens. For three decades he has reigned supreme as one the founding fathers of contemporary jazz. David has charted over 25 albums since 1980, and received three GRAMMY® nominations in the categories of Best Contemporary Jazz Performance for "Every Step of the Way" (1989), Best Large Ensemble Performance for GRP All-Star Big Band (1996), and Best Instrumental Composition for "Dad's Room." In 2010, Benoit received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Smooth Jazz Awards, and he's worked with an impressive potpourri of musicians, including the Rippingtons, Emily Remler, Alphonse Mouzon, Dave Koz, Faith Hill, David Sanborn, Cece Winans, and Brian McKnight.
