The Benevento/Russo Duo opened
A bold pairing
Keyboards-drum duo opens for Dirty Dozen Brass Band
By Jeff Miers NEWS POP MUSIC CRITIC
How often do you get to see a tuba player covering a funk band’s bass lines, and really making the thing swing?
How often does a New Orleans horn ensemble offer its French Quarter funk following an avant-garde keyboardsdrums duo’s take on modern improvisational music? How often do you see kids partying and dancing to “When the Saints Go Marching In?” Not often enough.
Thursday found what just might’ve been the boldest, most experimental pairing of a Thursday at the Square season that has been pretty experimental in general.
The Benevento-Russo Duo opened for the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, and though the turnout was small in comparison with many of this summer’s Square gigs, those who were wise enough to attend on Thursday were amply rewarded with music that acknowledged no borders, niches, races or creeds. It was just all good, whether it was a way-out-there take on early ’70s fusion, or a deep-in-the-pocket reading of contemporary New Orleans funk.
Openers Marco Benevento and Joe Russo are known to jam-band fans through the duo’s pairings with, among others, Phil Lesh of the Grateful Dead. There is a temptation to lump these two in with the rash of bass player-less groups littering the alternative music scene, but that temptation must be resisted. In fact, keyboardist Benevento and drummer Russo are after something else, something a bit more nebulous, certainly more abstract.
What exactly is it? Well, it’s not jazz, though it clearly has elements of that form. It’s not really rock, though it rocks, to be sure. It can’t be pop, because there are no vocals. I’d hesitate to call it the blues, though the blues informs it, naturally. I suppose it would suffice to say that it’s a refreshing take on all of these things.
Keyboardist Benevento takes old-school keyboards — what appeared to be a Fender Rhodes electric piano and a Hammond organ — and runs them through guitar player’s effect pedals, one of which appeared to be the Moog corporation’s invention, the Moogerflooger, which does more cool and crazy things to an instrument’s signal than I can possibly list here. Benevento modifies his tone and his harmonic information in real time, kind of like a high-priced London deejay might finesse his club mixes. Meanwhile, drummer Russo plays along with drum tracks when he feels like it, freely switching between rock bombast and well-schooled, free-form jazz playing at will. The result is often simply stunning, and, dare I say it, unique.
The band’s interpretation of Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” stands as a useful case in point. Here, Benevento messed with the melody, reharmonized the chords and suggested rhythmic twists that were grabbed and carried by Russo. This is unusual and unusually beautiful modern music.
The Dirty Dozen Brass Band plays a more antiquated style of sound, and it was impressive how easily the crowd fell beneath the group’s sway following the outer-space suggestions of the Benevento-Russo Duo.
The tuba playing itself was enough to boggle the mind, as the dude manning the albatross- like instrument laid down some serious funk lines, many of which would’ve made both Jaco Pastorious and James Jamerson proud. The baritone sax player laid down sexy counterpoint to the tuba throughout, and trumpet, trombone, tenor sax and electric guitar offered stunning counterpoint as the group dug deep into its rather timeless sound.
R&B this was, mostly, though played with the grease and grit of the Meters and the grace of a second-line marching band.
When the group brought up Buffalo’s own funk-meister Eric Crittenden to join in on alto sax, the place erupted. Crittenden accorded himself quite well, and was granted a pair of solo spotlights for his trouble. This was just a real rush, a true treat.

|Important news from bt.etree.org!
Begining on March 17 2006, all torrents seeded at bt.etree must
include 1) checksum files (.md5, .ffp) that include a checksum for
every lossless audio file in the fileset, and 2) a copy of those
checksums pasted into the torrent description, so everyone can see
them without downloading the fileset.
If you seed a torrent without this information, it will be deleted.
We're telling you this now, so you'll know.
Of course, if there is a problem, we'll try to contact you and help
to fix it. If you don't have a valid e-mail address on your
db.etree.org account, please take a moment to add one. If we can't
contact you, we can't help you, and it be very frustrating for
everyone. Seeders who don't have valid e-mail addresses may find
their logins disabled.
This message will appear on all torrents seeded to bt.etree until
everyone has gotten the message. If your torrent has checksum files
and lists them in the description, thank you! If not, please take a
moment to edit the torrent description to include them. If you have
to add the checksum files from scratch, you'll have to pull this
torrent and start over. Sorry about that.
For help generating checksums, please visit

questions, please post them at http://forums.etree.org and someone
will help you ASAP. Please do NOT e-mail us directly.
Thanks, and happy downloading.
