On his Mack Avenue debut Don’t Be That Way, Dave Bennett shows that his skills and interests go far beyond that of channeling any of his stylistic predecessors like Benny Goodman, Pete Fountain, Artie Shaw, et al. Once a member of the original Hot Club of Detroit, Bennett stays within the mainstream repertoire, covering several of Goodman’s most famous records. Together with his arranger Shelly Berger, Bennett updates these songs with modern twists created specifically for his long-time band mates. The result is an album that blazes its own path while still paying tribute to Bennett’s mentors.
