Marco Benevento N.East Dates

MARCO BENEVENTO Announces Northeast Tour Dates In November
With Two Trios: Marco Benevento, Reed Mathis & Andrew Barr
Marco Benevento, Marc Friedman & Josh Raymer

Marco Benevento
Marco Benevento continues a year long push behind his debut studio album, Invisible Baby, with a seven city Northeast tour in November. The Brooklyn-based pianist will lead a trio featuring bassist Reed Mathis and drummer Andrew Barr for the first three shows in Hartford, New York City and Burlington. He'll then be joined by bassist Marc Friedman and drummer Josh Raymer for the last four shows in Boston, Northampton, Fall River and Philadelphia. Opening the dates from New York City to Fall River will be the multi-dimensional singer-songwriter Nathan Moore.

Marco Benevento spent the majority of summer touring with his celebrated instrumental noise rock combo Benevento/Russo Duo, appearing at festivals like Outside Lands, All Good and moe.down. While Benevento's trio has kept a low profile of late (with the exception of a performance at The Newport Jazz Festival in August), the finishing touches are currently being added to a new studio album to be released in early 2009. Benevento was abetted on the recording by his musical co-conspirators Reed Mathis, Andrew Barr and Matt Chamberlain. The as-yet-untitled release was tracked in Seattle and mixed in Brooklyn at Bryce Goggin's Trout Recording.

Invisible Baby was released earlier this year on Hyena Records. It garnered critical praise for its infectious indie rock sensibility delivered with the finesse of deft jazz musicianship. Tunes like "Bus Ride," "Record Book" and "Atari"; were structured around acoustic piano-based melodies, but twisted to Benevento's will through his use of circuit bent toys, mellotrons, glockenspiels and other tweaked recording approaches. Benevento released a video for Invisible Baby's good time electro "The Real Morning Party"; (watch it below) and played select U.S. dates around the album's release. On his upcoming Northeast tour in November, it's a sure bet the sonic experiments and fearless improvisations will continue to crack open tracks from Invisible Baby; along with a number of choice renditions by songwriters like Jim James, Leonard Cohen and George Harrison among others.

instead of looking for a free way to cop Marco's record, you can buy it at iTunes or Amazon for less than $8. Considering he paid $10,000 to make the record, I don't think anyone would argue that's too much to ask.

The guy's deece, but he's almost like another particle Steve Morse with less creativity than Jacob fred's Brian Haas. I hope he keeps developing his skills, and doesn't keep sounding like a MMW rip off- Whatever, Rock ok- I hope

I really could not stand live at tonic.

it was avant improv NOISE. only Fearless was decent for me.

however, if you love him, I am happy for you :)

Great musicians, that show in January at Sullivan Hall with the trio was some of the best live music I've seen. And when Brad Barr came out to finish the set off with them shit was ridiculous. I can't wait to see them at Drom, and Mike Gamble's sick too, just saw him play last night. Oh, and, does anyone remember those late night shows he played with Brian Haas and Bobby Previte at the Blue Note in 2006?

I had to leave the DROM show early, as I was deathly sick - if anyone has a line on a tape, please let me know, I'm dying to hear the rest of the concert! phunkyjedi08 at gmail .com
