Innovative keyboardist Marco Benevento joins host David Dye on World Cafe to play songs from his first solo studio record. Better known as the "keys half" of the Benevento/Russo Duo, Benevento developed his new CD, Invisible Baby, from a batch of his compositions that didn't fit the duo format. Throughout the album, Benevento's jazz-piano sounds are backed by spot-on rhythmic textures and powerful crescendos.

From the musical haven of Brooklyn, Benevento combines jazz, indie-rock, and jam-band aesthetics to create a musical style of his own. Invisible Baby is drenched in chaotic circuit-bending techniques, warm organs, and melodic piano lines.
