John Bennett Band at the Macbeth in Hoxton

Welcome to John Bennett Band

John Bennett

The John Bennett Band plays contemporary jazz in a range of styles - tight structure and improvisation constantly interact. John and his contemporaries embody the way that jazz has developed from humble and isolated beginnings to become a sophisticated art form that speaks an international language.

John has written a range of compositions. In 1988, he received an Arts Council bursary to write an extended piece for jazz orchestra called 'Faith, Hope and Charity'. The John Bennett Band play all John's original material and Square One contains some of his better known tunes including 'Faith, Hope and Charity', 'Fanfare', 'Urban Blues' and 'Light House'. 'Light House' came out of a collaboration with the sculptor Keith Bowler which has been performed as part of an improvised art performance and light show in a Georgian house in Spitalfields, London.
