Jazz pianist David Benoit was born in 1953 in Bakersfield, California. Growing up in Los Angeles, Benoit began studying piano at age thirteen, and by the time he was in college he was focusing on composition and theory. David’s career began in the mid 1970’s as a musical director for Lainie Kazan, then later serving in the same roll for Connie Stevens and Ann-Margaret. But by the mid 1980’s, David Benoit was ready to attempt a solo career, and so he recorded and released his debut, Freedom at Midnight, in 1987.
The album rose to the top five on the contemporary jazz charts and set the stage for Benoit’s sophomore effort, Waiting for Spring. Waiting for Spring was even more successful, rising to the number one spot on the charts, and establishing a career for David Benoit which has since lasted almost three decades. Additional albums from Benoit include: Shadows (1991), Letter to Evan (1992), Shaken Not Stirred (1994), American Landscape (1997), Right Here Right Now (2003), The Benoit/Freeman Project (2004), and Heroes (2008.) David Benoit has also contributed tracks to albums by a number of other artists, including Patti Austin (The Real Me, 1988 and Carry On, 1992); The Dance ( Dave Koz, 1999), and Choices (Brian Bromberg, 2004.)
As one of jazz’s most prominent contemporary performers, David Benoit has performed for three presidents: George Bush, Sr., Ronald Reagan, and Bill Clinton. Benoit has been recognized with three Grammy nominations, for Best Contemporary Jazz Performance, Best Large Jazz Ensemble, and Best Instrumental Composition. Most recently, David Benoit began hosting a morning program for KKJZ in Long Beach. Currently, he is also the music director for the Asia America Youth Orchestra and the Asia America Symphony Orchestra.
