Marco Benevento has been thrilling audiences around the world for the past six years as one half of the critically-acclaimed post-jazz, instrumental rock luminaries, The Benevento-Russo Duo. From Austin City Limits to Bonnaroo, from The Fuji Rock Festival to Lollapalooza, Marco's enlightened keyboard visions have earned him a legion of young fans. While still touring consistently with The Duo, he's also stepping out on his own. In Spring of 2007, Marco formed his own trio for a string of sold out U.S. shows, featuring Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey bassist Reed Mathis and Tori Amos drummer Matt Chamberlain (for West Coast dates) and The Slip drummer Andrew Barr (for East Coast dates). Soon thereafter, the trio entered the studio to document the songs they'd been performing. The results are captured on Marco Benevento's first ever studio album entitled Invisible Baby. The results conjured by Marco and his band range from tasty Mellotron jams to distorted piano through a vintage projector amp, experiments with circuit bent gadgetry like Speak & Spells and Casio keyboards and a spectrum of audio colors including banjos, drum loops and Glockenspiels. The performances are sonic gold with layers of sound interwoven into compact, explosive and subversive musical statements.
