Benny Sharoni is an Israeli-born tenor saxophonist, bandleader, composer and arranger who is a mainstay on the U.S. and European jazz scenes. After emigrating from Israel to the U.S. to study at Berklee College of Music, Sharoni studied with jazz masters Charlie Banacos, Jerry Bergonzi and George Garzone before exploding onto the scene with his own unique brand of music. Fusing together classic bop influences of Sonny Rollins, Dexter Gordon and Steve Grossman, Sharoni flavors his music with Latin rhythms and an energetic drive that delights audiences worldwide. The repertoire includes unique arrangements of standards from the American Songbook, as well as original compositions.

Benny’s recent release, “Eternal Elixir”, has captured the hearts and ears of jazz listeners, reviewers and promoters, generating tremendous acclaim for this recording.

“…a vibrant hybrid of the hip and the holy."
- Owen McNally, Hartford Courant
