Jon Benjamin – Jazz Daredevil

Available via Sub Pop

Comedian Jon Benjamin tried making a deal with the devil to learn the piano before recording a jazz album, but the devil wouldn’t take. With a backing band of professional musicians, Benjamin struggles his way through this eight track-EP trinkling along on the piano with no musical experience. It’s a great way to enjoy jazz on the holidays without feeling too pretentious.
