Marco Benevento

When: Fri., Nov. 7, 8:30 p.m. 2014

The last time Marco Benevento came to Cleveland, he played an exciting version of “At The Show,” a new original tune that actually had lyrics (a Benevento non-entity at the time) and one that would eventually show up on his new album, Swift, released back in September. It’s a great song and it fits in perfectly with the lineup of other piano-, bass- and drums-driven songs released on that album. “Witches of Ulster,” which just got the video treatment a few weeks ago, spotlights Benevento’s newfound penchant for brooding atmosphere and his constant compositional skills. A couple of years ago, Benevento released TigerFace, which really upped the ante laid down on previous albums. Collaborations with Rubblebucket’s Kalmia Traver opened the album, foreshadowing vocal excursions on this new one. (“Limbs of a Pine” remains among Benevento’s greatest songs.) (Sandy)
