Philadelphia City Paper Ranks Mario Pavone’s Trio Arc Top Jazz CD Of 2008

In his list of the Top 10 Jazz CDs of 2008 published last week, Philadelphia City Paper jazz critic Shaun Brady ranked bassist/composer Mario Pavone’s Trio Arc (Playscape Recordings) as the best of the year.

Brady wrote, “Sometimes greatness is achieved simply by the interaction of unparalleled voices. Such is the case with this disc, the first meeting of bassist Mario Pavone and piano curmudgeon Paul Bley in 35 years. Joined by the playful inventions of drummer Matt Wilson, the result is sheer alchemy, a brisk 42-minute statement of elegant intensity. The wheel needn’t be reinvented when it can be made to roll toward such transcendent ends.”
