Bootleg a Day #6: Tony Malaby live in Bogota, Colombia

Posted by on Oct 2, 2014 in Bootlegs, Inspiration

 

About 1 year ago Josh Moshier and I took our group to Bogota, Colombia with John Tate and Jeremy Cunningham. It was an unforgettable experience, and it just so happened that Tony Malaby was playing across town. I still remember how excited the Colombian jazz community was to check Tony out, and the crowd of young, energetic, slightly bohemian jazz fans enthusiastically embraced his exploratory performance. This clip captures one of the more beautiful, sensitive, and in-time moments of a memorable evening. I regrettably don’t know the names of the local rhythm section, but they really brought it.

Through the wonders of YouTube, you can watch a full video of the show here:
