Guitarist/composer Michael Pavone's esteemed 20-year career has featured extensive sideman work and performances with the likes of Dewey Redman, Joe Diorio, John Scofield, Thomas Chapin, and Bobby McFerrin. He makes his debut as a leader here with his famous father, bassist/composer Mario Pavone, playing bass and sharing composer duties. "They share a knack for well-turned phrases that intersect the changes at striking angles and then resolve with a twist," wrote JazzTimes reviewer Bill Shoemaker.
Pavone's staggering chops and shrewd musicality indicate that he'll go far.
