We here at Nextbop have come to the conclusion, after scouring Marco Benevento’s latest press release, that he does not need sleep or is incapable of it. While that might cause a psychotic break one day, for now we will all revel in his constant album output and exhaustive touring schedule.

Nextboppers in New Orleans for Jazzfest can find him around the city for the next week and the rest of us can hope one of his many tour dates will hit our cities. In the meantime he has graciously provided a link to a free download of a music sampler, BENE LIVE: APRIL ‘11.
