ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"We Are the Orchestra" features New York saxophonist Daniel Bennett and guitarist Mark Cocheo. The renowned duo overdubbed the wind, string and percussion instruments to create the sound of a large ensemble. The repertoire is Bennett's quirky "Folk-Jazz" and arrangements of influential opera themes by Giuseppe Verdi. The album was conceived when Daniel Bennett was commissioned to arrange and perform the musical score for "Whitman at the Whitney" at the Whitney Museum in New York City. The Boston Globe describes Bennett's music as "a mix of jazz, folk, and minimalism." The band was recently voted "Best New Jazz Group" in New York City Hot House Magazine. The Daniel Bennett Group has been featured in the Washington Post, Boston Globe, NPR, Indianapolis Public Radio, San Francisco Examiner, St. Louis Public Radio and the Village Voice. The Village Voice raves, "saxophonist Daniel Bennett makes hay with an airy approach that's buoyant enough to conjure notions of East African guitar riffs and Steve Reich's pastoral repetition." In addition to leading his own band, Daniel Bennett performs in Broadway and Off-Broadway theater productions in New York City. Daniel Bennett recently composed the musical score for stage adaptations of 'Frankenstein' and 'Brave Smiles' at the Hudson Guild Theatre in Manhattan. Daniel Bennett currently plays woodwinds in 'Blank! The Musical,' the first fully improvised Off-Broadway musical to launch on a national stage. The New York Times calls the show, "Witty, Likable and Ludicrous!" Daniel Bennett's theatrical works have strongly influenced his eclectic sound and musical storytelling abilities as a bandleader.
