Marco Benevento Trio Returns To the Iron Horse on Thursday, December 3rd at 10PM

New DVD Release, LIVE IN NYC: THE SULLIVAN HALL RESIDENCY featuring KAKI KING, BRAD BARR, BILLY MARTIN, JOE RUSSO And Many More In Stores On November 10 (Watch The Trailer Here)

On his final run of East Coast shows in 2009, the revered indie jazz pianist Marco Benevento returns to The Iron Horse in Northampton, MA on Thursday, December 3. The 31-year old Brooklyn-based artist will lead his trio featuring Reed Mathis on bass and Andrew Borger on drums.

It's been a breakout year for Marco Benevento. In February, he released an album entitled Me Not Me, featuring interpretations of songs by My Morning Jacket, Leonard Cohen and Led Zeppelin among others. Touring it over the past ten months across the U.S., it's led to high profile performances including San Francisco Jazz Festival, Earshot Festival in Seattle and Carnegie Hall in NYC.

On November 10, he will release his first ever DVD, Live In NYC: The Sullivan Hall Residency, a two hour-plus documentary with performances and interviews from his five week 2008 engagement at the downtown New York City venue, featuring special guests like Brad Barr, Kaki King, Billy Martin, Joe Russo and Stanton Moore.

As Rolling Stone recently declared, "Benevento swings between rude-synth fun and high-speed piano breaks as if he were both Keith Emerson and McCoy Tyner." New Video here.
