The Boston Globe describes Bennett's music as "a mix of jazz, folk, and minimalism." Timeout New York chronicled Daniel Bennett's pioneering spirit during COVID-19, highlighting Bennett's leadership during the global pandemic. Sammy Stein, international editor for the Jazz Journalists Association, called Bennett, "an outspoken voice of hope." The Daniel Bennett Group played over 100 outdoor concerts during the pandemic. Daniel Bennett continues to play a weekly livestream concert with Koko Bermejo on drums and keyboard. Florida Today called the weekly livestream a "welcome treat" for the global jazz community.

The Daniel Bennett Group's 2021 album release, 'New York Nerve,' is available worldwide. "The album was conceived outside under snow-covered heat lamps at New York City jazz clubs. Outdoor music was our thing this year. The earth was our stage," says Daniel Bennett. The Daniel Bennett Group has toured the world, performing regularly at the Blue Note (NYC), Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club (London) and Herb Alpert's Vibrato Club in Los Angeles. The Daniel Bennett Group was recently voted 'Best New Jazz Group' in Hot House Magazine.
