Artist: Mario Pavone Album: Blue Dialect Genre: Free Jazz Label: Clean Feed Records Quality: FLAC Recording Date: 2015
It's always a joy to have a new recording from someone like Mario Pavone, for five decades a central figure of the most defying and uncompromised jazz played in the United States. He was there, in many of the key moments of this music, either with Paul Bley, Bill Dixon, Thomas Chapin, Anthony Braxton, Wadada Leo Smith, Marty Ehrlich, Steven Bernstein, Joshua Redman and many others. Now, we find him in the most conventional of trios, the piano-double bass-drums one, doing again what he does best--unconventional, exploratory music with post-bop as a reference. With the bass player are two like-minded improvisers, pianist Matt Mitchell and drummer Tyshawn Sorey, both carrying "five thousand terabytes of information" in them, as Dave Douglas put it once about the first. Blue Dialect is a never-ending flow of ideas and arguments, but always going to a focused destination and always aware of the point of departure. Each piece is telling a story and these stories have all it takes to enchant us and keep us wanting to get inside them. So, do it. Let yourself go.
