descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Head Under Water takes the listener on an immersive journey. Tony Malaby, Robert Burke and Mark Helias bring to each track their own identity, experiences, expertise and egos.

The musical decisions made by the ensemble in the moment of recording are central to the improvised interaction and the outcome.Tony Malaby searches for ‘the big idea’, Robert Burke and Mark Helias choose whether to match ideas or develop, introduce something new, play or not to play, to take a conciliatory or an oppositional position… to question.The resulting aural narrative demands that the audience let the music surround and flow over them—to actively listen to the interplay in each track, and engage with the intuitive emotions evoked.

Recorded in Brooklyn, New York and mixed in Italy, Head Under Water is a daring, instinctive and organic performance by three renowned jazz musicians."-Rob Burke
