"he's charting the future as mightily as Miles Davis did in the 70s"

"unabashedly joyous, groove-centric, spiritually danceable"





Pianist/Composer Richard X Bennett plays unique and soulful jazz with a sound all his own. His albums, the exuberant jazz-raga quintet  Experiments With Truth and melodic groove jazz trio What Is Now were simultaneously released by Ropeadope Records in October 2017. He also has six critically acclaimed raga-based records on Indian labels.  In New York, he has performed at Lincoln Center Out of Doors, The Guggenheim Museum, The Rubin Museum and Central Park Summerstage. Internationally, he has played in over twenty countries including a two month tour of China and Japan in 2019. His 2018 release, the solo Away From The Many and the 2020 downtempo collaboration with HUW, InParallel find him exploring more ambient and electronica influenced sounds, but in live performance his bands remain committed to a joyous and energetic groove.
