Benevento-Russo Duo

with Chris Hartford & the Band of Changes

Granada

The primarily instrumental organ and drums duo of Joe Russo and Marco Benevento creates a sound bigger than the sum of its parts, deeply rooted in traditional jazz but also owing a large debt to rock, funk and eastern influences. The band has collaborated with former Phish bassist Mike Gordon on occasion but typically avoids the noodly trappings of the jam scene in favor of more exacting compositions a la Medeski, Martin & Wood or The Slip.
