This week we pay tribute to the late Mario Pavone, with an epic live set in which his majestic bass sound propelled the Thomas Chapin Trio into the stratosphere at the 1995 Newport Jazz Festival. The rest of the playlist revolves around modern jazz guitar, with two different ways to pay tribute to Bill Frisell, by the Unscientific Italians and Skuli Sverrisson; the revelatory new albums by Hungarian guitarist Csaba Palotaï (with Steve Arguelles) and French guitarist Paul Jarret, the guitar talk of Joel Harrison and Pete McCann in tribute to Vic Juris (for Harrison's new imprint ASG), and the solo sound-painting of Lake Michigan by Scott DuBois. Completing the dense playlist, are the new albums by Joe Lovano and Dave Douglas' Soundprints Quintet, the first one featuring new material after a string of Wayne Shorter tribute albums, Tell No Lies and Ocelot.

Happy listening!
