Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
Marco Benevento's debut studio album Invisible Baby turns ten in 2018. In celebration of that decade milestone, Royal Potato Family is reissuing the album on colored vinyl. The collection includes songs that have gone onto become staples in Benevento's repertoire, including "Bus Ride," "The Real Morning Party" and "Atari." Benevento has been thrilling audiences around the world for the past decade as one half of the critically-acclaimed post-jazz, instrumental rock luminaries, The Benevento-Russo Duo. From Austin City Limits to Bonnaroo, from The Fuji Rock Festival to Lollapalooza, Marco's enlightened keyboard visions have earned him a legion of young fans. While still touring consistently with The Duo, he's also stepping out on his own.
In the Spring of 2007, Marco formed his own trio for a string of sold out U.S. shows, featuring Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey bassist Reed Mathis and Tori Amos drummer Matt Chamberlain (West Coast) and The Slip drummer Andrew Barr (East Coast). Soon thereafter, the trio entered the studio to document the songs they'd been performing. The results are captured on Invisible Baby. The results conjured by Marco and his band range from tasty Mellotron jams to distorted piano through a vintage projector amp, experiments with circuit bent gadgetry like Speak & Spells and Casio keyboards and a spectrum of audio colors including banjos, drum loops and Glockenspiels. The performances are sonic gold with layers of sound interwoven into compact, explosive and subversive musical statements.
