Wednesday, May 15th, The Bennett Paster group makes their debut appearance at NYC’s Jazz at Kitano. They’ll play selections from Relentless Pursuit of the Beautiful, their most recent CD, along with new music and arrangements of jazz standards. Full dinner menu and bar available.

Relentless Pursuit of the Beautiful is a broad-based modern jazz recording showcasing the compositions and piano playing of Bennett Paster. Joined by six masterful instrumentalists, he effortlessly integrates swing with Latin and Brazilian rhythms to forge a contemporary, accessible style. Recorded one sweltering July day in Brooklyn after a series of monthly performances at Greenwich Village music club The 55 Bar, the album vividly captures snapshots in the ensemble’s development. Their group interplay and unwavering melodicism render a rich, eminently listenable music that draws in the listener and brings them along on their journey.

Keyboardist, composer and producer Bennett Paster is one of New York City’s most creative and versatile musicians. He has performed original music at clubs, concerts and festivals in the United States, the Caribbean, South and Central America, Central and South Asia and throughout Europe. He has performed with jazz stars Wallace Roney, Keb Mo, Robben Ford, Kurt Elling, Rufus Reid, Bill Stewart, Billy Hart, Albert “Tootie” Heath, Ndugu Chancler and Yosvany Terry among others. Paster leads two bands of his own: The Bennett Paster Group, an acoustic quintet which performs his broad-based jazz and Latin-jazz compositions and Bennett Paster’s Funktet, a hard grooving band which showcases his formidable abilities on vintage electric keyboards and Hammond organ. He is also in-demand as a sideman and studio session musician, regularly performing and recording in NYC. Paster was a finalist in the 2008 Jacksonville Jazz Piano competition.
