Keyboard virtuoso and composer Marco Benevento came by Irwin's show at WFMU to play some songs off his latest release on The Royal Potato Family.
Marco has played and recorded as part of the New York jazz and experimental music scene for almost 15 years. Besides recording under his own
name, he's performed and recorded with Garage A Trois, The Jazz Farmers, Bitches Brew Revisited and Bobby Previte's Coalition of the Willing. With drummer Joe Russo, Marco formed the Benevento-Russo Duo. Marco often uses circuit bent toys to alter the sounds produced by standard instruments, and amplifies the piano with guitar pickups and electronic devices. His fifth album, TigerFace, has just been released on the Royal Potato Family label.
