Granville Island Jazz
Malleus Trio fuses original compositions with an improvisational language built up over more than a decade. Tricky rhythms, extended techniques, and dramatic dynamic shifts tell inviting, unpredictable stories. What if Sonny Rollins had the night off and called up Tom Waits to hit a Kendrick Lamar concert? Astor Piazzolla bumps into Albert Ayler at the after-hours joint and Al Green’s on the jukebox. Through it all, a love of groove and melody, an egalitarian compositional philosophy, and an appetite for risk catalyze in a blend of dissonance and danceability, sentimentality, and thrill-seeking.
