Marco Benevento "The Real Morning Party" from the album 'Invisible Baby'

Biography

For more than a decade pianist Marco Benevento has been amassing an extensive resume of composition and collaboration. His studio albums have set forth a vision that connects the dots between Explosions In The Sky and Tortoise on one side, Brian Eno and Brad Mehldau on the other. In the live setting, his performances reverberate with pulsating dance rock energy, which has led to numerous high ... Read more in Amazon's Marco Benevento Store

Editorial Reviews

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars surprisingly dull July 7, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In light of the rest of Marco Benevento's body of work, "Invisible Baby" falls short. What happened? While there are no power solos, the primary issue is that both the compositions and melodies are lackluster. There is the sense that just about anybody could have written and performed this music and a musician of Benevento's caliber could play this in his sleep. Along these lines, one of the great bassists of our time is on the personnel roster, yet Reed Mathis is barely audible. Many of the tunes would have made an interesting thirty second sequence within a larger, more complex composition but at five minutes, many of these songs drag. Now music doesn't have to be complex to sound good, but this sort of dull-drum simplicity is uninteresting. For these reasons, "Invisible Baby," works best in the background. The one highlight is 'The Real Morning Party.' A fun piece with hooks, this is the only celebration of the joy that is Marco Benevento's signature sound. On the plus side, there are times when Benevento puts the keyboard aside to play piano. He never performs in an entirely acoustic environment, but for variety sake, it is rewarding to hear Marco Benevento play with a different voice. In the end, the studio discography for this band began with a slow start. Fortunately, a learning curve happened and the follow-up is delightful. Indeed, the potential consumer should put their ear up to the slipcase of "Me Not Me." It can be heard whispering "Me Not Invisible Baby."

TWO YEAR FOLLOW-UP RESPONSE TO MY ORIGINAL REVIEW. My hard line on "Invisible Baby" has significantly softened.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Pop Jazz March 6, 2008
Format:Audio CD
In a way, this album is more full and complete than anything Marco has done with the Duo. The heavily distorted guitar-esque organs are still here, but so also is a heavy dose of baby grand not often heard with the Duo. "Bus Ride" or "Atari" could have been Duo songs, but what this album adds is beautiful mellow piano odysseys like "Record Book." The opening two songs are incredibly strong, as are the closing few. "Atari" and "The Real Morning Party" stray from the feel of the album I was getting after the first two songs, though. All in all, if you like the Duo, you will like this album. You may even like it more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Marco's Best April 1, 2011
Format:Audio CD
The way this album dominated my player probably happens to me every 2-4 years. It was easily my favorite album the year it was released. It still gets a lot of play, more than most albums in my collection. I will say that Marco's follow-up albums lack the energy, feel, intimacy, moodiness and chemistry of Invisible Baby. This album howver, is a gem, one that will continue to interest me for many years.
