Though they’ve never met, few figures occupy as intriguing a place in acclaimed keyboardist Marco Benevento’s mind as Fred Short. For Benevento, Short represents a variety of things: an itinerant musical shaman; an ominous messenger of looming environmental disaster; the namesake of the street he lives on (and the recording studio he built there) in upstate New York; and, ultimately, the inspiration for his sixth solo album, ‘The Story Of Fred Short.’

“One winter evening, I was finally home from the road with a night to myself in the studio, which I named after Fred,” Benevento remembers. “The conditions were perfect that night, and I improvised all the songs that make up Side B of the album. It all came out in an hour and a half of playing, and then over the course of the next year, I extracted the song ideas from that improvisation and turned them into the record.”

Benevento had a new tool at his disposal in the studio that night: his voice. He began singing for the first time on 2014’s ‘Swift,’ which was hailed by Relix as “uncompromising and continuously inspired.” Since then, Benevento has honed in even more on the warm, easygoing timbre and expressive quirks of his voice, working with fellow Catskill musician Kenny Siegal as a vocal coach to push him to his boldest and most adventurous work yet.
