New Ed Bennett CD Scheduled For Release This September 2010

Ed Bennett, longtime bassist for Carmen McRae, (and Saphu Records CEO) will release his fifth title as bandleader. "En Route" features Bennett's clever be-bop flavored compositions penned for trumpet and tenor sax with three piece rhythm section, piano, bass, and drums.

The fresh sounds of Bennett's original compositions are be-bop influenced, but unique with twists in their harmonic progressions and unusual forms. The musicians on this record date, Paul Mazzio on trumpet and Flugelhorn, Scott Hall on tenor and soprano sax, Dan Gaynor on piano, and Todd Strait (former longtime drummer for vocalist Karrin Allyson), are a winning combination both as accompanists and soloists for Bennett's originals. 10 original compositions from Ed are represented here, with an eleventh obscure standard present, "For Heaven's Sake".

The CD release party will take place at Portland's prestigious jazz club, Jimmy Mak's on September 3rd from 8pm to midnight. Visit Jimmy Mak's for more info and reservations. Please visit the Saphu Records Cd page in September to hear mp3 samples and purchase En Route online.
