Benevento will perform a selection from his lengthy discography — including tracks from his bands the Benevento/Russo Duo, Garage A Trois, and Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, as well as from his latest studio album, Let It Slide, produced by Leon Michels (The Arcs, Lee Fields). Benevento’s virtuosic approach to the piano is celebrated for its gritty, soulful edge.
Benevento “has been building a nationwide following for his jaw-dropping improvisational skills (and) a no-genres-barred approach” (Los Angeles Times) for two decades.
Benevento has studied under and played alongside other keyboardists including Joanne Brackeen, Kenny Werner, John Medeski and Brad Mehldau. He has recorded and collaborated with musicians such as Matt Chamberlain, John McEntire, A.C. Newman, Rich Robinson, Stuart D. Bogie, Annakalmia Traver, Andrew Barr, Billy Martin, George Porter, Joe Russo, Mike Gordon, Trey Anastasio, and Phil Lesh. Benevento currently resides in the Woodstock, N.Y., area with his wife and two daughters.
