The grandson of a trumpeter-bandleader Benny Benack, Sr. and the son of saxophonist-clarinetist Benny Benack, Jr., Benny Benack III. has been adding to his family’s musical heritage as a trumpeter.

A versatile trumpeter who ranges from swing to hard bop and also sings, he has performed with Postmodern Jukebox and released two of his own albums.

Emmet Cohen is one of the brightest young jazz pianists on the scene today, leading his own trio, working with the likes of Christian McBride, Veronica Swift, Ron Carter, Benny Golson, Jimmy Cobb, George Coleman, Houston Person, Kurt Elling and Brian Lynch, and releasing several rewarding albums.

On their LiveStream from June 25, 2020, Benack and Cohen perform a set of delightful and swinging music during a wide-ranging but continually fun set that includes a rather spectacular version of “Take The ‘A’ Train,” and “I Can’t Get Started.”

Bassist Russell Hall joins for the second half of the show, performing on Charles Mingus’ “Nostalgia In Times Square,” “You Are In Love,” “East Of The Sun,” and King Oliver’s “Weather Bird.”
