New Album! Phoenix Reimagined (Live)

3X GRAMMY Nominee Lakecia Benjamin to Release First Live Studio Album, Phoenix Reimagined (Live), on July 12, 2024 via Ropeadope

Transcendent performance boasts four new songs, including the title track featuring John Scofield, Randy Brecker and Jeff “Tain” Watts.

New York, NY- May 24, 2024 - First announced on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and following her week-long stint sitting in with The Late Show Band, 3x GRAMMY nominated star alto saxophonist Lakecia Benjamin returns with her first-ever live studio album, Phoenix Reimagined (Live), due out via Ropeadope on July 12, 2024.

Lakecia is endorsed by VandorenYanagisawaKey LeavesSennheiser, and Conn & Selmer.

Lakecia Benjamin is a 3x GRAMMY nominated New York-based saxophonist, arranger, composer, and educator. Her music offers a unique meld of R&B, several strains of jazz, and funk. Her warm, resonant tone — that has been compared to Johnny Griffin’s — lends itself to any form of music she chooses to play. In addition to honing her chops early with Clark Terry and later Terri Lyne Carrington, she is also a noted accompanist for vocalists — among them Gregory Porter and Theo Crocker
