Tony Malaby : Bio on

About: This series of intimate duets between Toronto bassist and composer Rob Clutton and noted NYC saxophonist Tony Malaby weaves together compositions based on transcriptions of Clutton’s improvisations, freeform exchanges, and a cameo appearance by Nick Fraser by way of his composition “Sketch #11.” While extending from a lyrical, contemplative base, it has plenty of peculiar turbulence throughout, demonstrating both players’ special and expansive instrumental vocabularies.
