Ben sent me his latest CD " Blue Fun" and it's been in my CD player non stop!!!


Beautiful full and rich with just the right amount of funk and soul mixed with really nice tasty note choices. In my opinion Ben should be doing the same kinda gigs and getting the exposure guys like (Lenny) Pickett or even James Carter gets. He's that good and that tasty.
In the old'd call it soulful. Today soul is such a passed around term that it gets lost. But LOOK Ben IS soulful. And the overtones in his tenor have weight to them and character.

And last but not least....he did " HOT CHA"".
Ben your killin' me!W$#@%#%~$^!$^$^ WOW-
What a great version of the tune and the sound he gets is inspiring.
Check out Ben " King" Perkoff....he's someone who has the gift.
