Max Bennett & Private Reserve

Fans and followers of contemporary jazz need no introduction to Max Bennett. An internationally known bassist and composer, his experience spans from concert touring, recording and producing, to composing music for feature films and television.

Max has toured and performed in concert with vocalists Ella Fitzgerald, Joni Mitchell, Barbra Streisand, Peggy Lee, and Aretha Franklin, just to name a few. His many years of working in the studios have given him the opportunity to exercise his affinity for jazz, blues, rock and latin music, and to combine those elements into his music.

The list of outstanding artists with whom Max has recorded includes, Quincy Jones, The Beach Boys, Joni Mitchell, Steely Dan, Marvin Gaye, Frank Zappa, various Motown Artists, Celine Dion, Nelson Riddle, Henry Mancini, Ray Charles, Michael Franks, Frank Sinatra, Phil Spector, Michel LeGrand, and countless others. Other artists Max has performed in concert with are jazz icons Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Stan Getz, The Crusaders and many more.

His world-class experience and desire to expand the boundaries of jazz and rock music led him to re-conceive jazz in the world renowned band L.A.Express, which included Joe Sample, Larry Carlton and John Guerin, under the leadership of Tom Scott. After the success of this band, Max formed his own group "Freeway," and currently heads his most recent and musically adventurous group, Private Reserve.

The Los Angeles Times, says, "Max Bennett is the genuine article himself, having come up through the "bebop" era to become a central figure in the contemporary jazz scene."

Private Reserve's music blends the best of contemporary concepts with the richness of jazz, blues, rock and latin music. Max says,"We feel that people identify with our strong melodies, rich harmonic structures and diverse rhythmic concepts. It is our goal to create original music of substance and intrinsic value."

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
