i sort of go out of my way to download christmas concerts, even though my wife hates xmas jazz.  i ran across this one lurking with “non-seasonal” jazz, so i gave it a listen before moving it to the xmas jazz collection.  super!  this may be my favorite so far and while i don’t think this one will change her mind, it might change yours.  so here it is — christmas in april!  a little present under the tree for international jazz day.  and it might be a good day to buy a cd or download, and give a little april xmas cheer to a jazz musician.

also, on sarah hughes’ site, she has links to several of shows from 2018 (hosted on the internet archive).

so we’re all hunkered down, aren’t we?  arthur’s has cancelled all shows, not that anyone would have gone.  i’ve cancelled a trip.  a good time to listen to some jazz at home.  hope you’re in the mood for a bit of brass:  saxes, trumpet, trombone and more.  and once again, led by a drummer.  enjoy!

comments fits on 1 cd
opening set 6-7 pm: rahstet – a rahsaan roland kirk inspired sextet.
notes from show announcement:
mario pavone, a bassist and composer, 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.
pavone 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.
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,
the village voice, and the new york times among others.
