The work of Mario Pavone bridges the dissonant, structurally open world of the avant-garde and the pulsing, swinging accessibility of jazz tradition. Here, the veteran bassist-composer presents a trio of projects over three nights. July 11 and 12, he leads quartets with saxist Ellery Eskelin and drummer Gerald Cleaver, rounded out respectively by trumpeter Dave Ballou and guitarist Michael Pavone (Mario's son). On July 11, Pavone celebrates an engaging recent release, Street Songs—inspired by the Italian, Portuguese and Polish accordion music he heard growing up in Westbury, CT—at the helm of a nonet.
