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 The 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 anthem, "The Real Morning Party" (watch it here) 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 wide tracks the from Invisible Baby along with a number of choice renditions by songwriters like Jim James, Leonard Cohen and George Harrison among others.
