PRAISE FOR MARCO BENEVENTO's Solo Studio Debut, "Invisible Baby":

"In yet another adventure of turning the swing in jazz on its ear, keyboardist Marco Benevento makes his debut with "Invisible Baby." It's a captivating eight-song collection of originals with a post-modern pastiche that's informed more by grunge, groove and pop than a traditional piano trio..." -- Billboard

"...Benevento is actually a pop formalist, albeit a sneaky one, and, for all his improvisational chops, a textural minimalist very much in the tradition of Brian Eno or Sigur Ros. Chaos and chance are the calling cards, but his songs are always accessible..." -- Bret Gladstone, Village Voice

"The new Benevento record will appeal to fans of Thelonious Monk, Air, Radiohead and Phish...tunes like 'Bus Ride' and 'Are You The Favorite Person Of Anybody' are ambient soundscapes winking at the psychedelic." -- David Callicott, New York Press

"Pure fun." -- Austin L. Ray, Paste Magazine

"Benevento is something of an iconoclast on the piano. He knows his Monk and his Basie, but he prefers to play like a rock star, bashing power chords into the ivories and hooking up with others who straddle the rock-jazz line. Is it jazz' Is it rock' Hard to say, but it hardly matters." -- Steve Greenlee, The Boston Globe
