TONY MALABY: Paloma Recio
New World, 2009

AVANT JAZZ – Improvising saxophonist Malaby leads an expert, free-minded quartet through unique soundscapes. Carefully built structures dissolve into abstraction, then reconstitute in new forms, following broad yet organic shifts in tempo and mood. Very solid outside work.

Tony Malaby - tenor sax
Ben Monder - electric guitar
Eivind Opsvik - bass
Nasheet Waits - drums

* * * * | All interesting. Fo’s picks: 1, 3, 4, 6, 9

1. 5:04 – African-tinged riff slides into expansive group improv, falls back softly
2. 4:36 – soft, moody: sax, guitar solos float through amorphous haze
3. 10:06 – speedy start melts into slow molten chords & quiet tension, keening cries, sparse drone, then an uptempo run drifts into slow discord
4. 4:14 – quietly rustling tone poem, individual musicians drift in & out
5. 2:51 – elusive: slow guitar tones, agitated sax egged on by bass
6. 2:19 – inquisitive sax over loosely rhythmic bass & guitar thumps
7. 5:46 – slow, creeping, melodic; abruptly changes direction after 4 minutes
8. 12:07 – falls apart immediately, slow bowed bass, escalates to speedy boppish feel, chugs under guitar, sax calms, gets skronky, quiet end
9. 7:38 – moody sax/guitar melodies diverge & reunite, quiet/spacey middle
10. 3:07 – very slow, quiet and atmospheric, meditative
