Malaby/Sellers Quartet: Cosas

Tenorist Malaby and trombonist Sellers are compelling soloists on these nine free jazz numbers, all originals. Malaby is the intense, wild one, Sellers the formalist. The combination/contrast works, especially with the capable Michael Formanek on bass and Billy Mintz on drums. All of the numbers are complex musical explorations with “Cosas,” “Hamza,” “Shimmering Shibboleth,” and “He Lacked the Imagination to Suffer” particularly extended.
