David Benoit
Since launching his recording career in 1977, David Benoit's expansive career as a contemporary jazz pianist and composer has included over 25 solo recordings. His '80s releases This Side Up, Freedom at Midnight and the GRAMMY-nominated Every Step of the Way are considered influential genre classics. Among his other GRAMMY nominations are those for Best INSTRUMENTAL COMPOSITION (FOR "DAD'S ROOM," from 1999's Professional Dreamer) and Best Large Jazz Ensemble Performance (for the GRP All-Star Big Band). His prolific output since 2000 includes several prominent Charlie Brown related projects (including Here's To You, Charlie Brown: 50 Great Years and the star-studded 40 Years: A Charlie Brown Christmas) that reflect his lifelong passion for the music of original Peanuts composer Vince Guaraldi and solidify Benoit's role as his musical heir.
Jane Monheit
Grammy nominated vocalist Jane Monheit will be joining Tyrell as a special guest. Monheit has been a leading light in both the jazz and cabaret worlds since emerging as a finalist in the Thelonious Monk Institute's 1998 vocal competition. In addition to her own recordings, she has worked alongside the likes of Terence Blanchard, Tom Harrell, and Ivan Lins.
Jason Moran
Pianist Jason Moran is the Kennedy Center's Artistic Advisor for Jazz and a Triple-crown winner in the 59th Annual Downbeat Magazine Critics Poll for Jazz Artist, Jazz Album & Pianist of the Year. According to the Washington Post, Moran is "a musical innovator who blends the traditions of blues and jazz with more modern elements of funk, rock and hip-hop."
