David Benot – Jazz For Peanuts
This is an enjoyable CD to listen to. Whether you’re a fan of the Charlie Brown & Peanuts gang television specials, movies, and comics created by the renowned Charles M. Schulz, or you simply like uplifting and light-hearted Jazz music, you will like this album. Jazz For Peanuts by David Benoit showcases the tunes and talents of artists including Wynton Marsalis Septet (“Buggy Ride”) and that distinctive New Orleans style Jazz, the living legend Dave Brubeck, the memorable Vince Guaraldi (“Linus and Lucy”), and Benoit himself. Among Benoit’s compositions is the melancholic and classy “Great Pumpkin Waltz.” Dave Brubeck’s tune “Benjamin,” which he wrote in celebration of his grandson, is a prime example why Jazz music is the happy place of the soul. Kenny G’s “Breadline Blues” is another favorite. Do you need to be blessed? Listen to this CD.
