Benoit rediscovers his roots with a self-produced, 11-track collection that features his Steinway piano surrounded by the engaging ensemble work of his regular touring band: acoustic & electric bassist David Hughes, drummer Jamey Tate, percussionist Brad Dutz and special guest saxophonist Andy Suzuki.
