SXSW Featured Artist: Marco Benevento

by Michael McGeary

needles_albumcoverWhether it’s with his duo and trio experimental jazz projects, his work with the avant-rock band The Slip or as a featured player in all-around Cool Rock supergroup Surprise Me, Mr. Davis, one thing is clear – Marco Benevento can light up a room from his keyboard. Based in Brooklyn, Benevento has been a fixture on the independent scene around the country for more than a decade and will be bringing his organ and piano work to Austin tonight for SXSW. If you can’t make it to his show tonight, you can check out some of his music on stations like these – including Minnesota’s Jazz 88.
