Description

Music has an unparalleled ability to stir the emotions, awaken memories, and transport the heart and mind to new dimensions. Multi-Grammy nominated pianist/composer/film scorer David Benoit and acclaimed guitarist/composer Marc Antoine manage to do all of the above on their Shanachie debut So Nice! A founding father of contemporary jazz, David Benoit is celebrating his 40th year as a recording artist and has collaborated with everyone from The Rippingtons and Faith Hill to David Sanborn and CeCe Winans. Parisian born guitarist/composer Marc Antoine, also a premiere architect of contemporary jazz, has worked alongside such diverse stars as Sting, George Benson, Cher, Dave Koz, Everette Harp and Celine Dion. Benoit and Antoine first recorded together in the late 90s and finally have the opportunity to record an entire CD together on the wonderfully romantic So Nice! Their new collaboration sizzles with rich harmonies, dancing rhythms and soaring melodies that create the perfect opportunity for the duo to explore their shared passion. “I have loved Brazilian Bossa Nova ever since I first heard Stan Getz and Jao Gilberto together,” confides David Benoit. “But when my parents took my family on a holiday trip to Rio de Janeiro, I really fell in love.” Marc Antoine adds, “My mentors were Andrés Segovia and John Williams and then I heard Baden Powell play this hybrid classical and Brazilian music on the guitar and I fell in love with Brazilian rhythm.”
