Tom Rainey is back at Walter. This time he brings the telepathic trio of keyboardist Angelica Sanchez and saxophonist Tony Malaby.
Angie, Tony and Tom are each renowned masters of the music, whether leading their own various bands or playing with the cream of the New York jazz scene. About their trio, Tom says: “It sounds simple to say, but the three of us have real creative chemistry together. Chemistry is the difference between just a group of good musicians playing in a room and something magical happening together. Tony and Angie are like musical family to me. I’ve been playing in various groups with Tony for more than 20 years now. There’s so much depth to what he does, and it gets deeper all the time. Angie’s personality really comes out in her writing as well as her playing – this honesty and generosity of spirit lives in the music. For my part, I want to contribute to the collective, to keep it going and do what I can to always make the music special.”
