DATE: Friday, APril 29
TIME: 8 P.M.
Tony Malaby, tenor & soprano saxophone; Ben Monder, electric guitar; Tom Rainey, drums.
Saxophone powerhouse Tony Malaby returns to the Sound It Out series with an ace new trio, featuring frequent drum foil Tom Rainey and very electric guitarist Ben Monder (who played on David Bowie’s “Blackstar”). DownBeat describes Malaby as “a formidably accomplished soprano and tenor saxophonist with an enviable tone and an endless font of compelling ideas, yet he steers his music away from perfection. His considerable gifts as a melodist tend to sneak up on you.”
