Marco Benevento

Details

More art pop than jazz, the vibe on this album is semidark and semisweet, irresistible as the chocolate you'll be sneaking into the venue when Benevento performs with his trio on Saturday, Oct. 31, at 9 p.m., $25; www.sfjazz.org.
Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

More About

Keyboardist Marco Benevento comes on like a postmodern Vince Guaraldi on Me Not Me, a concept CD of 70 percent covers (Led Zeppelin, Deerhoof) done up to sound both familiar and utterly original. Like Guaraldi, the jazz composer of Peanuts soundtrack fame, Benevento approaches musicmaking with an ear for memorable melodies that ultimately set a mood. He creates an animated, hallucinatory ambience with electronic manipulations, chill drum-machine beats, and avant-garde "prepared" techniques like placing cardboard in the piano strings.
