Entirely self-taught, he began at age 10 on clarinet listening to and quickly playing along with Benny Goodman records. At 12 he was invited by legendary jazz trumpeter Doc Cheatham to the bandstand of New York's famous Sweet Basil jazz club. By 14 he was out frequently touring around the USA with Michigan's New Reformation Dixieland Band. Later self-taught instruments were the electric guitar and "boogie-woogie" style piano.
Bennett is a blazing clarinet sensation playing the "swing style" of Benny Goodman. Leading his Tribute to Benny Goodman, he has been a featured soloist at Carnegie Hall with The New York Pops (2013) and has played the program with 50 other US and Canadian orchestras.
Bennett has been featured on NPR Radio's "Jazz at Riverwalk." He made his European debut in 2008 at the Bern Jazz Festival (Switzerland) in a combo with jazz legends (and Benny Goodman band alumni) guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli and vibraphonist, the late Peter Appleyard. Bennett is a Mack Avenue Records artist.
