MALIJA is saxophonist Mark Lockheart’s current small group with the amazing Liam Noble on piano and Jasper Hoiby on bass. They formed the group as a result of an invitation to perform at the Rochester Jazz Festival 2014 in New York and right from the first rehearsal they found great musical empathy. They’d worked together previously on Mark’s 2009 album ‘In Deep’ but for MALIJA they decided to share the writing and explore a sound world without drums together. It’s really hard to describe the music but Jasper put it brilliantly when he described our music as “weird, simple, complicated, free, tight, floaty, ugly, beautiful and heartfelt, depending on your mood”. They have two CDs 'The Day I Had Everything’ and ‘Instinct’ are both on the Edition Record label. You could also describe it as ECM with added grit. "Malija delivers the expected deliciously abstruse riches a-plenty, peppered with humour, melodic wit, irregular groove and a vivid descriptive quality" MOJO
