Litchfield Jazz Fest to mark Mario Pavone’s 80th Birthday 

Source: Republican-American.

Bassist/composer Mario Pavone turns 80 on Nov. 11. Like the postman undaunted by rain, sleet, snow or hail, nothing – not even a pandemic – will keep the Litchfield Jazz Festival from marking this milestone in the life of a deserving musician. Litchfield Jazz will host a tribute on Oct. 23 from the Telefunken Soundstage, with Pavone himself (along with his Dialect Trio) doing the honors. The performance, at 7:30 p.m., will be livestreamed and free, accessible through the jazz festival website at
