Benjamin’s latest and forth studio album Phoenix was released earlier this year. The far-reaching new album finds the tour-de-force saxophonist in a poised and profoundly individual position alongside an all-star cast of musicians. The album was produced by the multi-Grammy-award winning Terri Lyne Carrington.
