If you thought keyboardist Marco Benevento and drummer Joe Russo's duo made some noise, you ain't heard nothing yet. If Best Reason To Buy The Sun (Ropeadope, 2005) offended you, step away from the speakers. Benevento was only warming up.

When Benevento arrived in New York in 2001, he studied piano with Joanne Brackeen and Brad Mehldau and Invisible Baby is the piano trio album he says he's always wanted to make. But don't be fooled. On the disc, he's accompanied by the exuberant post-rock drummers Matt Chamberlain (five tracks) and Andrew Barr (three tracks), and the electric bass is played by the murderously heavy Reed Mathis.

Benevento himself spends almost as much time on Mellotron, Wurlitzer, combo organs, circuit bent toys, and other electric keyboards as he does on piano—which is, anyway, mostly fed through Leslie speakers, projector amps, spring reverbs and custom tape effects.

This is, however, no mindless thrash; it is a carefully arranged, multi-layered affair. The disc overflows with sonic and rhythmic adventures, morphing dynamics, surreal humor, psychedelic colors, melody, joy and a lust for life. A couple of sweeping, stadium-sized ballads complement the overall full-throttle delirium.   Continue on All About Jazz.
