The Jeff Benedict Big Big Band – The Weather Is Here
O’s Notes: Saxophonist Jeff Benedict has been in the music since he was a kid. His passion and enthusiastic approach comes through in the music, and he performs with friends who share his passion. Guitarist Dave Askren steps up on “Ant Dance” and then makes it funky on “Tom and Jerry”, in homage to LA’s Tom Scott and Jerry Hey. We also enjoyed the spirited rendition of “Cheek to Cheek”, “Hikky Burr” and “Armadillo Research”. There’s a good mix of both traditional and contemporary standards all jazzed up and swinging with this large ensemble.

Since 1988 Kari-On Productions has helped artists get an even footing in the industry through jazz promotion in the genres of Jazz, World & Latin Jazz through Jazz Radio and Publicity. Why do we do both, because they compliment each other, and we care about fiscal longevity for the artist.
