When we last saw this amazing trio, it was at Sullivan Hall and they played all night — or at least until after 2 a.m. Last Tuesday at Le Poisson Rouge, Marco Benevento Trio were under a tighter schedule. There were no 23-minute songs, but what the trio packed into an 80-minute set was tight, focused and aggressive. We were happy to have been wrong when we previewed this show, as Reed Mathis did appear on bass.

This was our first trip to Le Poisson Rouge. The venue is indeed impressive and has implemented an excellent sound system, with PA speakers strategically placed around the venue to create a room with literally no dead spots. We recorded from inside the soundboard booth, which was unfortunately not a prime location as it sat elevated in the back of the room. The result is a boomy recording, which does not accurately reflect the excellent sound in the room that night. When we next visit this excellent venue, the microphones will be more strategically placed.

This Recording is now available to Download in FLAC and MP3 at Archive.org [HERE].
