MARCO BENEVENTO is a New York jazz musician who plays as simply as Thelonius Monk and as expansively as Sun Ra. His musical tastes run the gamut from Led Zeppelin to Miles Davis.

SONNY LANDRETH is best known for his slide playing, having developed a technique where he also frets notes and plays chords and chord fragments behind the slide while he plays. Landreth plays with the slide on his little finger, so that his other fingers have more room to fret behind the slide. He's also known for his right-hand technique, which involves tapping, slapping, and picking strings, using all of the fingers on his right hand.
Landreth has recorded with Jimmy Buffett, and accompanied him on his 2006, 2007 and 2010 summer tours.
