Marco’s Momentum

Last night Marco Beneventos weekly residency continued with a sold out show at New Yorks Sullivan Hall. The keyboardist drew his largest Sullivan Hall crowd to date, with a line of ticketless fans stretching down Sullivan St. throughout his first set. Throughout the night the popular keyboardist was joined by longtime friend Skerik and drummers Calvin Weston and Billy Martin for two-sets of completely improvisational music. Benevento added a few more players to the lineup during his second set, including Kaki King, who showed off her skills on lap steel, bassist Jonas Hellborg, who is perhaps best known for his work with Jeff Sipe and, for a short improvisational set, Joe Russo, who made a surprise appearance after checking out his Duo partners first set.

Benevento will celebrate the release of his first solo studio album, Invisible Baby, at Sullivan Hall next Thursday. As previously reported, the keyboardist will also make his third appearance on Relixs Cold Turkey next week to discuss his new project. But, taking a cue from our regular Reader Interviews, the enthusiastic keyboardist will field questions primarily submitted by and Relix readers. So, if there is something youve always wondered about Beneventos new CD, weekly residency at New Yorks Sullivan Hall, arsenal of keyboards or myriad of other projects please send an e-mail to with the subject ‘My Marco Interview.’ Benevento will sit down with the Cold Turkey team the afternoon before his CD release party at Sullivan Hall on January 31. Also, be sure to include your full name so we can give you credit on the air. The Duo has also confirmed a handful of new dates. The paired performers will support Cornelius at Washington, DCs 9:30 Club this evening and New Yorks Webster Hall Saturday. Before performing with Russo in Harrisburg, PA last Friday, Benevento also sat-in with Suburban Transit, the new project from Quagmire Swim Teams Buzz.
