A fixture in Los Angeles area clubs since 1980, Benn Clatworthy was originally heavily influenced by late-'50s John Coltrane, but would soften his tone and sometimes sound a little like Warne Marsh with touches of Sonny Rollins. He debuted on record in 1990, with his Discovery release Thanks Horace (which also features pianist Cecilia Coleman) and, in 1995, released While My Lady Sleeps on his own label (featuring Cedar Walton as a guest).
