2/10 Jazz that’s not quite jazz

Posted by novoscene on February 9, 2009

Now in the second week of his 4 week Yoshi’s residency, experimental pianist and composer Marco Benevento plans on shaking things up the whole time he’s in town.  Already well known on the NY experimental scene and named by the LA Times as on of 2009’s “Artists to Watch,” Benevento is known for his creative-is-an-understatement use of electronics, fusion post jazz/rock compositions and inventive covers of artists including Deerhoof, Leonard Cohen and My Morning Jacket.

This Tuesday, he revisits the “two drummers and a saxophone” band from his  2008 Sullivan Hall residency with drummers Billy Martin and G. Calvin Weston and tenor saxophonist Skerik.-kwan
