The NYC trio of saxophonist Tony Malaby, bassist William Parker and drummer Nasheet Waits present their 3rd Tamarindo record of "high-impact free-form progressive jazz extravaganza", flowing music demonstrating the strength of all 3 players.
Malaby, Tony Tamarindo
Label: Clean Feed
Released in: Portugal
"There's a Portuguese saying which can be translated to "there is no two things without three", and even if that's not entirely true, the dictum is now confirmed by the third recording by that supertrio called Tamarindo, assembling Tony Malaby, William Parker and Nasheet Waits.
Again, you have the poetic feeling transmitted by the chosen name for this project, but also the drive and the energy implicit in the one that was firstly thought to identify this music: Exploding Heart. Yes, each piece almost blows in your face, like an exotic fruit bursting in delicious juices. Critics already labeled it as a "high-impact free-form progressive jazz extravaganza", but Somos Água is not simply more of the same.
After Tamarindo and Tamarindo Live, both released by the Lisbon-based Clean Feed, you notice that the formula is perfected and matured. The music flows like a river, surpassing all the obstacles put against its currents, and it happens in the most natural of ways, even if you know that those rocks and branches were disposed there with purpose. Here's an astonishing release, confirming Tony Malaby as one of the living heroes of the saxophone and revealing all the motives why Parker and Waits are two fundamental voices of today's jazz creativity."-Clean Feed
