Marco Benevento, is taking up a February residency at Oakland, Calif.’s intimate and famed Yoshi’s jazz club, including a special tribute to Neil Young with Russo on drums.
Benevento will perform each Tuesday, from Feb. 3 to Feb. 24, with special guests like Bill Martin (Medeski Martin & Wood) and Jeff Parker (Tortoise). Meanwhile, Benevento traverses the West Coast, playing Portland, Seattle, Los Angeles and Cottage Grove Ore., among other places, all the while returning to Oakland for his Tuesday night gig.
Then, on the last night, Benevento, Russo, saxophonist Peter Apfelbaum and trombonist Josh Roseman perform “Quartet The Killer,” a musical interpretation of Neil Young’s catalog.
Benevento will soon drop Me Not Me, which interprets music by Deerhoof, Leonard Cohen, George Harrison and My Morning Jacket, among others.
