Editorial Reviews

Over three previous studio albums, pianist/sound-sculptor/songwriter Marco Benevento has set forth a vision for instrumental music that connects the dots between Explosions In The Sky and Tortoise on one side, Brian Eno and Brad Mehldau on the other. On his fourth studio recording, 'Tigerface', the 34-year old artist takes the next step forward in this evolution. Benevento paints his songs in a myriad of sonic colors, shimmering in acoustic piano, synths and analog keyboards. The tunes themselves conceptualized from seemingly every wisp of melody, hook and cadence that's ever tickled his ear. The album was recorded and mixed by Tom Biller (Silversun Pickups, Fiona Apple) and Bryce Goggin (Pavement, Akron/Family), while Benevento invited a stellar cast of musicians to help capture his ideas, including drummers Matt Chamberlain (Bill Frisell, Pearl Jam), John McEntire (Tortoise, The Sea & The Cake) and Andrew Barr (The Barr Brothers), bassists Dave Dreiwitz (Ween), Reed Mathis (Tea Leaf Green) and Mike Gordon (Phish), violinist Ali Helnwein (Traction Avenue Chamber Orchestra) and saxophonist Stuart Bogie (Antibalas, Superhuman Happiness). For the first time on record he uses vocals, inviting Kalmia Traver (Rubblebucket) to sing on the infectious dance rock rave-up 'Limbs Of A Pine' and the pastoral psych rock meditation 'This Is How It Goes'. Other standouts include the angelic Arcade Fire meets The Flaming Lips anthem 'Eagle Rock', the soaring garage psychadelia of 'Going West', the piano riff rock jaunt 'Escape Horse', and the happily lilting 'Fireworks', which bounces along like a long lost Italian folk song beamed down to him by ancestors from his father's homeland. As anybody who's seen Benevento perform live can attest, the pianist eyes closed, smile wide across his face, fingers free-flowing across the keys is a satellite to the muse. 'Tigerface', indeed, is the commitment to this idea; a record that rides the yes wave and in the process becomes a soundtrack for fellow travelers chasing the horizon ahead.

"TigerFace" is a welcome addition to Marco Benevento's growing discography. The most unusual dynamic of the project is the inclusion of vocals. When instrumental musicians of this genre throw in a couple of singing songs for variety sake, the tracks typically inspire an uncontrollable urge to press the 'skip' button. In contrast, Benevento invited Kalmia Traver. For those unfamiliar with Traver's work, "Rubblebucket" is essential listening. He really couldn't have picked a better vocalist. She sings on 'Limbs Of A Pine' but the real stand-out is 'This Is How It Goes.' It's a beautiful song that combines elements of dance, pop and rock. After Traver's songs, the album returns to what we've come to expect from Marco Benevento. It's jam friendly rock with flavors of electronica, jazz and psychedelia. 'Fireworks' features Benevento's signature piano work. There really is a beauty, an original inner light to his sound. Benevento's music has a quirky and playful sensibility. At times, he plays the piano in a simple, acoustically inspired environment. At other times he turns up the electronics, often playing over digital drumscapes. Indeed, "TigerFace" feels very modern. Adding to the album's sonic range, 'Eagle Rock' features strings. One of the highlights is 'Escape Horse.' Containing mellotron, it is anthemic Marco. The album closes with an instrumental version of 'This Is How It Goes.' As always, these albums are well-produced. When it comes to the sophistication of the song writing, the CD doesn't push the envelope as much as "...Read more ›

I thought the Marco's sound was fun and fresh when I heard a snippet of "Fireworks" on the radio, so I purchased TigerFace.. One of the few cases I would recommend buying the entire album.

I know some of live concerts by M. Benevento & Russo. I like his music and I decided to try the CD M. Benevento solo. I was not disappointed at all.
