Benny Sharoni wowed Yardbird Suite patrons with his energetic mainstream jazz style when he appeared here for the first time in the fall of 2017. He returns with his long-time drummer, Steve Langone, as well as one of Canada’s best pianists, Dave Restivo. Edmonton bassist Paul Johnston rounds out the quartet.

Originally from Israel and now based in Boston, tenor saxophonist Benny Sharoni is a U.S. bandleader, composer and arranger who is a mainstay on the international jazz scene. A straight ahead player who fuses together the classic bop influences of Sonny Rollins, Dexter Gordon and Steve Grossman (among many others), Sharoni flavors his music with Latin rhythms and an energetic drive that delights audiences worldwide.

He demonstrates fervent skill on his horn that instantly lifts him above the pack, but that’s only one element of his winning formula. Sharoni is also a player committed to unfettered expression; reaching an audience through taste, beauty and infectious swing.

Benny’s recordings, “Eternal Elixir” and “Slant Signature”, captured the hearts and ears of jazz listeners and critics, earning tremendous acclaim in the jazz world.
