Music Without Limits on Saturday NightMay 21st, 2010
After graduating from the estimable Berklee School of Music in Boston, organist/pianist Marco Benevento made his way to Brooklyn and eventually reunited with childhood friend Joe Russo, a drummer. What began as a series of shows at the old Knitting Factory became the experimental-instrumental Benevento-Russo Duo. And when Benevento and Russo aren’t playing together or with Trey Anastasio and Mike Gordon or doing Zeppelin covers, Benevento has his own music. Speaking of which, his third studio album, Between the Needles and Nightfall, came out just last week. With a new disc comes a new tour, and since Benevento plays his material—and some covers—live with drums and bass, the Marco Benevento Trio (above, performing “Atari”) will be at The Bowery Ballroom tomorrow night. You should be, too.
