Mario Pavone

Bassist/composer Mario Pavone has collaborated with both legendary innovators and today's most respected young musicians to consistently define the cutting edge of jazz for the past 40 years. He has anchored the trios of Paul Bley (1968-72), Bill Dixon (1980's), and the late Thomas Chapin (1990-97), and co-led a variety of notable ensembles with Anthony Braxton, Wadada Leo Smith, Marty Ehrlich, and Michael Musillami. His list of sidemen past and present includes Steven Bernstein, Gerald Cleaver, Dave Douglas, Peter Madsen, Tony Malaby, Joshua Redman, George Schuller, Michael Sarin, Craig Taborn, and Matt Wilson among many others. And, unlike most artists whose careers span five decades, his most recent recordings are his most widely acclaimed, appearing on best-of- the- year lists from Slate.com, AllAboutJazz.com, AllAboutJazz-New York, Coda, Village Voice, and The New York Times among others. Although a long career in jazz awaited him, Pavone never received formal music training and didn't seriously encounter jazz until his freshman year at the University of Connecticut in 1958

Mario Pavone: Philosophy

Read "Philosophy" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Ci sono musicisti che percorrono con discrezione il proprio itinerario artistico e, pur senza collocarsi nel novero dei protagonisti, si ritagliano un ruolo importante di connettori, di tenaci tessitori delle trame che rendono vitale e significativo un periodo artistico. Il contrabbassista Mario Pavone è senz'altro uno di questi. Un musicista prezioso, prodigo di iniziativa. Lo abbiamo ...

Trio Treats

Read "Trio Treats" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

This episode is dominated by trios, perhaps the most popular format in jazz today. Steve Lehman's new The People I Love debuts (with the addition of the formidable pianist Craig Taborn), definitely a must-hear for 2019. Golden Valley Is Now reunites Taborn with Dave King and Reid Anderson (they all grew up together), while another threesome ...

Mario Pavone Dialect Trio: Philosophy

Read "Philosophy" reviewed by Mark Corroto

In his review of their debut Chrome (Playscape Recordings, 2013), my learned colleague at All About Jazz, Dan McClenaghan described Mario Pavone's Dialect Trio as “a beautiful tumult." That description expanded with the trio's sophomore disc Blue Dialect (Clean Feed, 2015) and maybe further with their latest Philosophy. The maelstrom they foment is partly explained by ...

The Creative Musicians Improvisers Forum: New Haven's AACM

Read "The Creative Musicians Improvisers Forum: New Haven's AACM" reviewed by Daniel Barbiero

The late 1960s through the 1970s and '80s were difficult years for jazz and jazz-derived improvised music, but they were also years that saw musicians—by necessity—respond to these difficulties with creative solutions. With first the rise and then the commercial dominance during those years of rock music and the corresponding eclipse of jazz, creative musicians in ...

Peter McEachern Trio: Bone Code

Read "Bone Code" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Il veterano trombonista del Connecticut Peter McEachern dedica questo bell'album in trio all'illustre collega Roswell Rudd, scomparso sei mesi dopo la sua incisione (dicembre contro giugno 2017). Per farlo si accompagna a due prime firme di basso e batteria quali Mario Pavone, con cui vanta un rapporto quasi quarantennale, e Michael Sarin, incontrato invece nei primi ...
