Tony Malaby is one of the busiest saxophonists in the New York scene today. Whether it was his month-long residency at the Tea Lounge in Brooklyn in May 2008, his ongoing once-a-month slot at The Cornelia Street Café in Greenwich Village, or upcoming appearances with Fred Hersch, this alumnus of Charlie Haden's Liberation Music Orchestra and Paul Motian's Electric Bebop Band has built a well- deserved fan base of both jazz enthusiasts and fellow musicians. On "Cosas," Malaby is joined by the spacious and imaginative rhythm section of Motian and Drew Gress, allowing Malaby to simmer slowly and comfortably until he's inspired to build to one of his trademark extended 16th-note runs. A generously sympathetic trio performance.
