The David Bentley Trio and special guest Ric Halstead bring a cool groove to Brisbane’s Doo Bop Jazz Bar on June 23.
The trio comprises David Bentley on keyboards and vocals, Andrew Shaw on acoustic bass and Nathan Goldman on drums.
It’s a swinging, spirited and multi-faceted lineup that features original songs, timeless jazz standards, funky blues and New Orleans grooves.
David Bentley is a noted jazz/blues pianist, formerly based in Brisbane but now living on the Sunshine Coast. His musical interests span a wide spectrum. As well as being a drawcard in its own right, David’s trio – better known as DB3 – has backed touring jazz greats including vibraphonist Milt Jackson, singer Mark Murphy and sax hero Phil Woods. The trio performs frequently at Brisbane Jazz Club and has appeared at many music festivals including the Queensland Music Festival, the Crossbows Festival and Restrung.
As a songwriter, David is best-known as the author of In A Broken Dream – a hit for his r&b group Python Lee Jackson in the 70s (with an anonymous Rod Stewart on vocals). The track recently re-entered the global charts as a remix, retitled Everyday, for Harlem rapper Rocky A$ap and is heard on the soundtrack of several documentaries and films – including the acclaimed art house film, Breaking The Waves, as well as the newly released Baywatch movie. David has recorded several albums of original material under his own banner. His song Irretrievably Blue (from the Last Man Standing album) was selected for inclusion on an ABC compilation of excellent but hard to find recordings. His next album offered a jazz trio exploration of the American songbook.
“David Bentley has finally made the time to release another solo set, a classy collection of the jazz-tinged R&B which has been entertaining Queensland audiences these past 30 years. In style, (Bentley’s album) Last Man Standing fits with the likes of Georgie Fame and the later Van Morrison, easily moving between jazz, soul and blues, with healthy doses of New Orleans… Noel Mengel, The Courier-Mail.
