Marco Benevento, Andrew Barr, Reed Mathis: 5/12/2009 at Real Art Ways Broadcast
May 10 @ 6:00 pm
MARCO BENEVENTO From here on out, Marco Benevento is only going to perform in tiger suits – why else do you think he named his album TigerFace? If you believe that, perhaps you’d like to have a little discussion about a prime piece of real estate we’re looking to unload. However, this next bit of information is dead serious – Benevento has delivered an album with not one but two songs with vocals on them. For lack of a better term (or maybe because we’re feeling particularly lazy) let’s even call them “pop songs.” If you’ve been following the musical endeavors of Mr. Benevento—a musician whose prolific output over the years quite frequently gets branded with the “experimental” or “jazz” stamps—the tiger suit scenario might initially seem a lot more plausible. His live shows, after all, have been known to be rather raucous affairs. Would a tiger suit really be out of place? Spend any time listening to the new album or conversing with its lively, articulate and occasionally mischievous creator, however, and you’re liable to walk away with a new impression of the man and his music. Over the course of a conversation, you’re as likely to hear mention of the Black Keys and Kris Kristofferson as you are Keith Jarrett or Brad Mehldau.
