Notes and Editorial Reviews

“Within the last decade the tenor and soprano saxophonist Tony Malaby has earned a reputation as one of New York’s stalwart improvisers, through an array of sideman appointments and some rigorously rewarding albums.” —The New York Times

Tony Malaby (b. 1964) is a highly respected figure in the downtown New York contemporary jazz scene. He is also well known for his versatility, having worked with such groups as Charlie Haden’s Liberation Orchestra and the Paul Motian Electric Bebop Band. One of the many groups led by this powerful tenor saxophonist, Paloma Recio can be described as a progressive ensemble with a Spanish tinge. Malaby describes Paloma Recio as “new music dedicated to an angel flying over the Iberian Peninsula

In its broad-ranging sonic expression and flowing improvisational nature, this recording is one response to that discussion. Malaby’s vivid compositions artfully blend improvisation and composition and Paloma Recio is further affirmation of his growing stature as a composer.
