Mario Pavone's Orange Double Tenor
This sextet is a little big band, and it's easy to dig both their gentility and gumption. Throughout the new Arc Suite T/Pi T/Po, the bassist's designs demand that his team deliver punch after graceful punch. From Dave Ballou's trumpet spin-outs to Gerald Cleaver's cymbal peppering, they rise to the challenge. Celebrating his 70th birthday at this gig, Pavone is sure to illustrate the scope and insight he's developed on freedom swing.
