The last eighteen months have affected Tony Malaby's music and personal life in a drastic manner. 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 of saxophone at the Berklee College of Music, as well as a new record on Sunnyside Records recorded Live at the 55 Bar with guitarist Ben Monder and drummer Tom Rainey, the week before the shutdown last March. This episode features music from Monder/Malaby/Rainey: Live at the 55 Bar (Sunnyside).
