Dom Minasi Reviews Jimmy Bennington

From Dom Minasi:

As you know every once in a while I post a review of a CD or a musician I think is worth mentioning. Well if you don’t know drummer Jimmy Benningtons’ name or music, here’s your chance to do so. Jimmy is a 44-year-old musician living and mostly working in Chicago. I met him a few months ago when both of us were performing (Separately) at the Cadence Jazz Festival in Brooklyn, NY. When I heard him I just sat back and said to myself,” now here’s a guy who can play”. Not only can he play tastefully, but, he can play both in time and free and to me that is the real test that marks a true jazz player.
