Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
As a long time listener of the Duo, I was enthusiastic about Marco Benvento's first solo album, "Invisible Baby." After a few listens, that excitement quickly eroded into disappointment. I had to wonder if Benevento was one of those performers who primarily shines within a very specific musical environment. With the exception of the Mike Gordon and Trey Anastasio related side projects, I had about given up on life outside of the Benevento/Russo Duo. In the end, the glowing reviews by RP and Music Lover persuaded me to give Benevento's sophomore studio release a shot. I'm now glad that I took the plunge because "Me Not Me" has become a satisfying musical experience. Sonically, this sounds similar to the musical landscape that the Duo traversed - but with a twist. For starters, the band shines. As far as Marco Benevento goes, he plays delicious keyboard work that sparkles with psychedelia. While it was interesting to hear an acoustic piano on the first solo album, the impact amounted to little more than a curiosity. Here, the piano work is as prevalent and powerful as anything Benevento plays on the mellotron and clavinet. While it's regrettable that bassist Reed Mathis melts into the background, the keyboards and drums hold everything together -not unlike the Duo. The rhythm features a dynamic balance of acoustic sounds and tripped out beats that were inspired by electronic genres. While this album has the same personnel as on the initial release, the guys are finally able to successfully combine real jazz with psychedelic rock. Indeed, this music is as listenable as it is interesting. Another contrast with the freshman album is that this release is mostly comprised of covers.Read more ›

Marco Benevento is a young post jazz pianist on his way to creating a magnificent body of work. And even so, I feel like calling him a pianist is under-stating it. He isn't just a musician, but an artist seeking new forms of expression through music. He manipulates sound by running an acoustic piano through guitar pick ups, pedals and amplifiers while simultaneously calling upon an abundance of other tonal colors and texture from instruments like the mellotron, optigan and tack piano. This could all be gimmicky in the wrong hands, but Benevento utilizes a broad sonic palette only to inform and bring to life the character of the song at hand. More importantly, always at the heart of Benevento's performance is the melody. On his latest album 'Me Not Me,' the melodies are drawn from an A-list of diverse sources: My Morning Jacket (Golden), George Harrison (Run Of The Mill), The Knife (Heartbeats) and Beck (Sing It Again). The mood unfolds from pastoral to futuristic to rambunctious to minimalist in a natural progression. Playing in a trio configuration, his rhythm section supplies a strong foundation and, when the time is right, they'll launch into swerving rock rhythms that allow for intriguing improvisational flights from the pianist. 'Me Not Me' is highly recommended. Listen to it with headphones and get lost in its depth or turn it up in your car and fly down the highway.

What Marco Benevento is doing with the keys is unlike anything I'm hearing elsewhere in rock, post-jazz, traditional jazz, or the jamband world. Precisely by eschewing a tether to any category, he writes songs that are infinitely listenable. Despite his ability to bash ferociously when playing with Joe Russo in The Duo, he has a penchant for melody and phrasing that is mature and classic in style -- as Reed Mathis says in Marco's DVD, "He's a songwriter, he writes hooks, he writes melodies. He's interested in the listener". Thus, I would highly recommend picking up either "Invisible Baby" or "Me Not Me" -- the former if you want to explore the wild rapids of Benevento's solo work, and the latter if you want to hear how he delivers fresh takes (and instrumental at that) on material from some of the most well-known songwriters of our time. This is an album that you could buy for anyone who likes thoughtful music.

The sound is like something you have never heard within the realm of music. Marco takes the skilled sound of a professional pianist and fuses new-age industrial effects into all of his works, creating a sometimes brilliant, sometimes dark, but always invigorating, musical piece. His use of electronic effects with a piano never fails to produce a full and complete feeling to a piece, arousing one to almost wonder... would Beethoven or Debussy, in our time, have used these new-age effects within their pieces as well... and if so, would they have been able to do it as well as Marco? Buy the album, listen to it all, and answer that for yourself.

Inspired release where musicality, technicality, and production values convincingly meld to produce a transcendent jazz piano homage to rock.
