Marco Benevento: Jazz Rock Renegade

New Jersey-born pianist and composer Marco Benevento has been a familiar face in the New York City experimental jazz scene since the early 2000s. His latest album, TigerFace, was released Sept. 2012, and is his first to feature vocals. At the cornerstone of his unique sound is a kaleidoscopic arrangement of effects pedals and circuit-bent toys, all deftly manipulated to elicit a vibrant and fully danceable rock sound. Benevento is currently touring in support of TigerFace, and will play The Saint in Asbury Park on Friday, March 1.
