David Benoit is a regular contributor to contemporary jazz and smooth jazz scene since his first album Heavier Than Yesterday (1977). During his GRP-time he became popular by his album Freedom At Midnight (1987) and his homage to Charles M. Schulz, the creator of the Peanuts, the album Here's To You, Charlie Brown: 50 Great Years (2000). Under the label Peak Records he has recorded Benoit/Freeman Project 2 (2004), Orchestral Stories (2005) and Full Circle (2006).
Now he is back with his album Heroes (2008). Musicians on this album are beside the maestro himself David Hughes (acoustic and electric bass), Jamey Tate (drums) and Brad Dutz (percussion). As special guest appears Andy Suzuki (alto and tenor sax). Don't mix up Heroes with the American science fiction serial drama television series created by Tim Kring. David Benoit's Heroes are artists like these who engaged David's musical sensibilities throughout the years.
"These songs are really a part of me and such a joy to play," David comments. "Being in the studio working with longtime friends was a very comfortable situation. I've covered Brubeck and Evans before, and ‘Blue Rondo A La Turk' is as much a staple of my live show now as ‘Linus and Lucy' once was. Oscar and Horace touched most pianists from my generation, and I'm a huge fan of Dave Grusin and was signed to his GRP label for many years. Beyond that, some of my other choices may surprise people, and that's exciting to think about. Listening back to some of these gave us goose bumps, and I want listeners to share in that excitement and magic that we felt in the studio. One of my favorite Peanuts strips has Charlie Brown walking into Schroeder's living room as Schroeder is listening to the stereo in a huge overcoat. Charlie Brown asks, ‘Schroeder, why do you have an overcoat on? His reply: "Because I get chills listening to Beethoven. That's the power of music."
