Thursday night was the fifth and final night of Marco Benevento’s January residency at Sullivan Hall, and it was a party in more ways than one. The night was a CD release party for Marco’s new CD Invisible Baby, and it featured the twice-performed “Real Morning Party” along with a premiere of the video for the song in between sets. Benevento was joined by the superb bassist Reed Mathis (whose band Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey is featured on nyctaper here), and drummer Andrew Barr (from The Slip). The last half of the second set also featured guitarist Brad Barr (also from The Slip). The band performed two long sets of a superb mix of jazz, prog, jam, rock and pop, all anchored by the unique keyboard and effects of Marco.

The recently upgraded Sullivan Hall continues to be extremely friendly to tapers, and as a result we arrived early and secured a safe position in the upper seating area. While we were not centered, the unimpeded access to the left stack gave us a clear signal, although the crowd continued to be quite chatty. Overall, we are pleased with the results, and extremely happy to have captured this excellent show in its entirety. Enjoy!

This recording is now available for download in FLAC and MP3 at Archive.org [HERE].
