Bryan Beninghove

Bryan Beninghove is a NY/NJ based saxophonist and multi-instrumentalist. As a composer and bandleader, he performs in a wide array of diverse musical styles - all fantastically pleasant on the ears and mind.

Beninghoveʼs latest release, “Beninghoveʼs Hangmen”; an eclectic collection of “creeptastic grinder-jazz”; placed number three on Lucid Cultureʼs list of the Top 25 Jazz Albums of 2011. His first release, “Organ Trio”, an album of rollicking B3 “grits and gravy” earned a nod from the Village Voice as a top pick of 2009.

- # 3 Top 25 Jazz Albums of 2011 (Beninghove's Hangmen) -Lucid Culture - #7. Top Albums of 2011 (Beninghove’s Hangmen) �" debut album. -New York Music Daily
”best debut album of 2011 by a longshot.” - New York Music Daily

“If Marc Ribot’s noir stuff is your kind of thing, Beninghove’s Hangmen are heaven. They call their music “creeptastic grinder jazz for the masses,” which is an understatement. Creepy, chromatic B&W movie tunes; a shot of gypsy punk; a hit of klezmer hash; a blast of surf music; a bite of punk jazz; a dash of ska…and the chase is on!...

It’s hard to keep track of all the great albums that have come out this year, but this has to be one of the ten best.” - New York Music Daily

“Bryan Beninghove and crew assemble an exciting set of contemporary straight-ahead jazz that leaves quite an impression. It's a debut of tasteful music that can be appreciated by casual listeners and a discerning jazz audience.”

Edward Blanco All About Jazz

”So what do you get when one of the rising young lions on the prowl in the big apple picks up his sax and surrounds himself with two cats that have clear cut Blue Note chops on their resumes?...Sprightly, solid fun outing that’s as deceptively simple as it’s title, it’s in the pocket all the way.
