If you have been reading The Late Greats for a while now, you know I love Marco Benevento. His album from last year – Invisible Baby – was heralded as an 8 track masterpiece.
He is back in 2009 with a killer new album of mostly covers called: Me Not Me. What you get in ten songs: a) Marco distinct keyboard playing complete with impressive solos and intricate melodies; b) stellar backup band, complete with Reed Mathis on bass and drummers Andrew Barr and Matt Chamberlain; and c) a jazzy album that will rock your world.
