Mario Pavone performed at the Litchfield Jazz Festival with his group, Orange Double Tenor. Pavone performed a new work, Arc Suite, commissioned by Chamber Music America with support from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
I love jazz because next to my kids, it's the love of my life.
I was first exposed to jazz by Joe Rico from a tiny station in Niagara Falls in 1954 when I was 13.
The best show I ever attended was Maynard Ferguson who blew the roof off Massey Hall in the late 50s.
My advice to new listeners is to listen to everything you can and then listen again.
