Jesse Stacken Quartet
The earthy tone of Malaby’s tenor fits snuggly with pianist Stacken’s cunning freebop. With drummer Tom Rainey guiding things while enhancing the textural quotient, Stacken’s tunes take on a mischievous nature – very inviting stuff. The second half of this double bill finds the saxophonist sailing over an unholy alliance of shadowy strings and a fat brass bottom. Call it a porto-orchestra.
