“Malis’ multi-faceted stylings cover a broad range of free expression. He bridges the gap between original composed, complex material and the spontaneity of improvisation.”
Hot House Jazz Guide, New York, NY
The Michael Malis Trio is a forward looking, compositionally motivated improvising ensemble based in Detroit, Michigan. The trio’s debut album, “Lifted from the No of All Nothing” (Polyfold) features all original compositions by Malis, and was released July of 2015. The music includes elements of free improvisation, as well as moments of highly detailed, through-composed material, with a thread of jazz-informed language running through the entire album.
Hope to see you there!!
