Our favorite hippie, keyboardist Marco Benevento, has been touring fairly steadily since the release of his latest genre-bending album, Swift. Back in April, Benevento played Burlington, Vermont's Signal Kitchen in a show that had everything-- a masquerade ball, a full moon, a segue into a David Bowie tune, and all the craziness that would entail Benevento and his posse playing one of their favorite venues. The night was just so magical that he just released the recording of the set for free at the Royal Potato Family site, so you should definitely cop it for yourself and coast on this vibe.
Marco Benevento's latest album, Swift, changes the game up. The keyboardist who always brings the party goes even further, singing all throughout this release, a first for him, and bending the music from a purer jazz direction to one a little more rock-based and a lot more raucous. In the new video for "If I Get to See You At All", the party is on full display, featuring GoPro footage compiled from Benevento's fall tour, his farm, his studio, and more. Check it out after the jump.
Recently, pianist/keyboardist Marco Benevento released his first single from his upcoming album, Swift, out September 16th on the Royal Potato Family label. The single, "At the Show", marks the first time Marco's recorded his vocals for all the word to hear. Now to put things on that next level, he put out a video for the song. Check it out after the jump.
Our favorite hippie, Marco Benevento, released a new single this week, "At the Show", off his upcoming album, Swift, out September 16 on Royal Potato Family. Swift marks the first time in which Benevento's vocals are featured and the man sounds just as gregarious singing along as his playing has always conveyed. Check out the song and Marco's pipes, available for purchase at iTunes and Amazon and give it some play after the jump.
Enjoy some TigerFace after your turkey day (if you're American, or before your second matzah night if you're Jewish, I would imagine, not to pare down a holy day to its attachment to an unleavened bread that tastes quite good in soup). Here's video of Marco Benevento's full performance in Baltimore's 8x10 back on November 9th. It was a very full two hour set with a very well placed camera. If you're blessed enough to be able to laze the day away, tuning into this video may be a pretty great way to do so. Check it out after the jump.
