Benny Benack III
"A charismatic young trumpeter who maintains an earnest sideline as a singer..."
The New York Times

Trumpeter/Vocalist Benny Benack III welcomes his Italian brothers to NYC, celebrating the release of their first album together, "Kiss Me Slowly". As an Italian-American, Benack dives into his heritage with this fiery quartet, performing both his original music, as well as timeless classics from the Italian American Songbook such as Volaré and Éstate. Having toured Italy extensively headlining clubs and festivals from Rome to Sicily and everywhere in between, the band features guitarist Daniele Cordisco, bassist Giuseppe Venezia, and drummer Elio Coppola. All possessing a shared love for romantic melodicism and musical drama, the end result of this band is simply "Bellissima!"."
