Dave Bennett Don't Be That Way
Release Date: October 15, 2013
Label: Mack Avenue
In the early days of jazz, the clarinet joined with trumpet and trombone to create the music's signature sound and it ruled the roost in the swing era, when jazz was America's popular music and dance-party soundtrack. If anyone can return the clarinet to its heyday, it's Dave Bennett.
On his Mack Avenue debut, Don't Be That Way, he shows that his skills make him perfectly suited for the job. He stays within the mainstream repertoire and even covers several of the most famous hit records of the 1930s.
