Luke Malewicz Quintet CD Release Party for Green Ruins
One of the most in demand trombonists in Chicago, Luke Malewicz brings his trademark fire to the masses with his breakout album, Green Ruins. Featuring a who’s-who of the city’s finest; saxophonist Rich Moore, pianist Andrew Toombs, bassist Tim Seisser, and Makaya McCraven on drums, the quintet leads the listener on a journey of accessible, original compositions by Malewicz. In live performance, this dynamic ensemble showcases an engaging interplay, building off of years of working together in various combinations.
It is here that Malewicz shines, not only showing his effectiveness as a leader, but his virtuosity and completeness as a musician - inspiring trombone legend Luis Bonilla to exclaim, “he not only continues to display a total respect for tradition, but frankly, I'm absolutely blown away by his unabashed reach for the future.”
