JazzPOP: Bennie Maupin
"...acoustic post-bop jazz of rich lyricism, both subtle and audaciously gorgeous." —Village Voice
Multi-reedist Bennie Maupin can cut right through you with his tenor saxophone, sing you a lullaby on his flute, or coax you into another world completely with his understated, breathy bass clarinet playing. A veteran of Herbie Hancock’s Headhunters and Mwandishi bands, Maupin is also well known for his performance on Miles Davis’s iconic album Bitches Brew.
