The Daniel Bennett Group played over 100 outdoor concerts during the pandemic. Bennett continues to play a weekly livestream concert with Bermejo on drums and keyboard.

Florida Today called the weekly livestream a “welcome treat” for the global jazz community.

The Daniel Bennett Group’s 2021 album release, “New York Nerve,” is available worldwide.

“The album was conceived outside under snow-covered heat lamps at New York City jazz clubs. Outdoor music was our thing this year. The earth was our stage,” Bennett said in a news release.

The Daniel Bennett Group has toured the world, performing regularly at the Blue Note (NYC), Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club (London) and Herb Alpert’s Vibrato Club in Los Angeles.

The Daniel Bennett Group was recently voted “Best New Jazz Group” in Hot House Magazine.
