Musician

Mario Pavone

Born:

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

Dezron Douglas: Atalaya

Read "Atalaya" reviewed by Chris May


Atalaya is Dezron Douglas' first full-length album leading a band in over four years. The bassist's recent sightings have whet the appetite rather than deliver the main course. Black Lion (Self Produced, 2018), made with a sextet, attracted good notices, but was an EP. His appearance on drummer Makaya McCraven's Universal Beings (International Anthem, 2018) was ...

Favourite Recordings from 2021

Read "Favourite Recordings from 2021" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


As per usual, the first One Man's Jazz of a new year features music from my favourite recordings of the previous year, selected from a wide range of artists from 38 countries.

Mark Corroto's Best Recordings Of 2021

Read "Mark Corroto's Best Recordings Of 2021" reviewed by Mark Corroto


Another year in jazz, and another year in global pandemic jazz. When we look back on these times, I believe we will refer to them much like the designations BC and AD (or BCE and CE, if you like). We'll ask, what was music like before masks and social distancing; and, remember when we squeezed together ...

Mario Pavone: Blue Vertical

Read "Blue Vertical" reviewed by John Sharpe


There is an inevitably tinge of sadness to Blue Vertical. Not because of any particular flavor of the music, but because, along with Isabella (Clean Feed, 2021) it's one of two final releases by bassist Mario Pavone, who died aged 80 less than two months after this March 2021 recording session. Pavone began his career in ...
