Album Notes
Chris Bennett is a name synonymous with the international success and commercial appeal of the southern California contemporary jazz music scene. With six jazz CDs to her credit and a 7th Broadway Jazz CD to be released soon, she has secured a revered place as one of an intimate handful of successors to Peggy Lee, June Christy, Anita O'Day and the classic American female jazz vocalists.

At times a stylist and, more often, the singer of self-composed music, she is always a genuine artist in performance. In her 20's Bennett was scouted and hand picked my multi-Grammy and multi-Academy Award winning composer/producer, Giorgio Moroder, to front the popular disco group Munich Machine. He chose Bennett as the lead vocalist to sing the dance version of the Procul Harum rock classic, "A Whiter Shade of Pale". Bennett not only recorded the entire album, she also posed for the groundbreaking cover art; entirely naked. Bennett's runway model's body and movie star looks caused an international sensation and made for one of the best charting and highest grossing disco albums of 1978. By the 80's Chris had established herself as a successful singer, songwriter and producer. Her distinctly clear voice and high range backed up some of Donna Summer's biggest hits. She was nominated for a Grammy for co-writing the "Theme From Midnight Express" for the hit movie.

She has written songs for Tina Turner, The Manhattan Transfer, Nina Storey, Randy Hall, Suzi Lane, and many more. She produced multi-Grammy winner Keb Mo's first album, "Rainmaker" for Casablance Records. Since 1993 Bennett has released "Once Upon A Time, Live At The A-Trane", "When I Think of Christmas", "Until the End of Time", "Live in Berlin", "Less if More", and "Chris Bennett" and has become a staple of both straight ahead and Smooth Jazz radio programming. The success of her concerts, CD sales and consistent critical triumphs have led to soldout performances throught Europe, New York, Chicago and at home in Los Angeles.

A humanitarian of the first order, Chris Bennett has also co-written with Lisa-Catherine Cohen, and recorded a song in memory of the Holocaust - "Remember" as well as a song in support of gay marriage- "Everybody Has The Right". She does many concerts each year to raise money for worthy causes. Bennett has recently finished the music for a Broadway Musical that combines her love for music and yoga, which she also teaches.

Her newest CD, "Once Upon A Time" - Live at the A-Trane was recorded in 2004 at Berlin's hottest jazz club and features the amazing, Armando Castagnoli from Tahiti on sax, as well as Berlin's top musicians -Ernst Bier - drums, Helmut Bruger - keys, Earl Bostic - bass. Chris is an accomplished pianist and plays many of the tunes herself on this exciting live album.
