THE “Jazz at the Gallery” series has been running for 18 months at Canberra Grammar School’s Art Gallery, collaboration between the school and musicians from the ANU.

The focus is on top  individual artists.

This weekend they have a special treat in the person of New York sax player Tony Malaby, billed by the organisers as a superstar of jazz.

Originally from Tucson, Arizona, Malaby has been permanently based in New York since 1995 and has been a member of many notable jazz groups including Charlie Haden’s Liberation Orchestra, Paul Motian’s Electric Bebop Band and Mark Helias’ Open Loose. Malaby now has a new release, “Tamarindo,” on the Clean Feed label with bassist William Parker and Nasheet Waits on drums.

Also featured will be with drummer Simon Barker, bassist Cameron Undy and alto saxophonist David Ades, who has torued the world and also performed with artists such as Scott Tinkler, Marc Hanneford, Elliott Dalgliesh, Carl Dewhurst, Simon Barker and Cameron Undy.

In 2012 Ades released an album Called “A Glorious Uncertainty,” recorded in New York with Mark Helias on bass, Malaby on tenor saxophone and Gerald Cleaver on drums.

“Jazz at the Gallery”, 7.30pm, Saturday, June 8 at Canberra Grammar School Gallery, 40 Monaro Crescent Red Hill. Tickets $20 at the door, Parking available. BYO drinks.
