Tony Malaby, Tania Gill & The Gathering

Read "Tony Malaby, Tania Gill & The Gathering" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


I decided to lay out for most of this last episode of 2021 and just let the music roll. There are a couple of new releases in the mix, one from Tony Malaby and a somewhat revamped Sabino and Toronto pianist Tania Gill's Disappearing Curiosities. Definitely check out the great singer, Dwight Trible, and his rendition of “Strange Fruit," on an upcoming release by the Los Angeles ensemble The Gathering.

An early bout with covid created a necessity for Malaby to retool his saxophone playing from a physical standpoint and at the same time it created the space for him to revisit the music that informed his playing in his earlier years. In this episode of LINER NOTES Tony speaks about the music that he created in this time, his new position of professor ...

Tony Malaby: Turnpike Diaries

Read "Tony Malaby: Turnpike Diaries" reviewed by Dave Kaufman


COVID-19 has decimated the live music business and left many jazz musicians without the much-needed income from gigs. The absence of live music has been partially compensated for by livestream performances and a small number of outdoor gigs, including those supported by the Arts for Arts group. Nevertheless, feel-good stories have been few and far between amidst the wreckage of the pandemic. However, Tony Malaby and friends have created a musical oasis in the most unusual of places, a secluded ...

Read "Tony Malaby with Nick Fraser at the Rex" reviewed by Dave Kaufman


I recently relocated to jny: Toronto and I'm still familiarizing myself with the local jazz scene and musicians. The scene itself turns out to be more expansive and broader in musical scope than I anticipated. The Rex Jazz Bar and Hotel is the pre-eminent jazz club in the city. It features jazz seven nights a week with as many as 20 shows in a given week, almost rivaling Smalls Jazz in jny: New York City for the breadth of its ...

Tony Malaby's Apparitions: Voladores

Read "Voladores" reviewed by Troy Collins


New York-based tenor saxophonist Tony Malaby's seventh album as a leader, Voladores, is named after the visually stunning Mexican dance troupes he saw while growing up in Tucson, Arizona. Inspired by their celebratory rhythmic fervor, he employs a dynamic dual drummer-based quartet on this date, revisiting the heavily percussive line-up of his 2003 sophomore release, Apparitions (Songlines).

Bassist Drew Gress and drummer Tom Rainey return from the earlier session, with second drummer Michael Sarin replaced by percussionist and ...
