The Michael Malis Quartet

Wednesday, July 10, 2019 @ 8:00 pm


Recently named one of Detroit’s most important young jazz musicians by the Detroit Free Press, avant garde jazz composer and pianist Michael Malis leads his quartet with piano, upright bass, drums & trumpet. Malis is known for his loose and spontaneous free expressions of music, bridging very technical compositions to spontaneity. Of his latest composition “Head and Heart,” he explains how his music represents both: “I hope that it models a measured and thoughtful approach to living; an approach where we buttress our emotional cores with contentiousness and care. In this sense, head and heart can be complimentary, interdependent, and mutually supportive.” In August 2017, his duets with saxophonist Marcus Elliot on the recording Balance were praised by the Detroit Metro Times as “contemporary jazz of the highest order, a benchmark for where the genre can go.” The two were last year’s Chamber Music Society of Detroit Artists-in-Residence in the public schools. His repertoire will be originals and modern standards.
