In this reunion after some 40 years as leaders in their own right, bassist Mario Pavone and pianist Paul Bley get together in an improvised setting for Trio Arc, also featuring drummer Matt Wilson. They are all incomparably creative players and you should expect great music from them - and you get it here via a series of shorter and compact themes allowing all three to discourse freely, with no wasted motion or overbearing excesses. No discussion by the musicians was broached prior to the session, and with the brilliance of the participants, none is really needed

Mythos is an album by bassist/composer Mario Pavone recorded in 2001 and released on the Playscape label. The guests are trumpeter Steven Bernstein and tenor saxophonist Tony Malaby, both of whom bring a fiery irreverence to Pavone's music.
Mario Pavone: Trio Arc by Robert Iannapollo, published on June 13, 2008. Trio Arc is the first meeting of the two in 35 years (Pavone briefly rejoined Bley's group in 1972). The trio is rounded out by drummer Matt Wilson who, though a couple of generations their junior, sounds as if he was raised on this music. The disc, seven improvised tracks, opens with a flurry of activity from Pavone and Wilson as they lay down an all-over bed of rhythm that Bley attacks with relish. Yet soon the music slows down and the trio engages in the slow, organically unfolding interplay that Bley pioneered. There are many moments to savor
