This all-star trio was formed in 2014 as the result of an invitation to play at Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival in New York. Mark, Liam and Jasper are all internationally recognised performers, band leaders and composers in their own rights who have joined forces to explore common musical interests. The music they make together is rich and varied and not easy to describe. Perhaps Jasper put it best when he described MALIJA’s music as “weird, simple, resultant music is not easy to describe complicated, free, tight, floaty, ugly, beautiful and heartfelt depending on your taste and mood!†Mark Lockheart played in the saxophone section of the anarchic 1980s big band Loose Tubes and for more than a decade has been in the front line of the thrashy, electronica-enhanced Polar Bear. Jasper Høiby is the bassist/leader of the jazz power-trio Phronesis and though pianist Liam Noble’s 20-year career spans free jazz, Japanese death poetry and the standard repertoire, drum-free jazz trios are conspicuous by their absence. THE DATE OF THIS PERFORMANCE IS FRIDAY MAY 6TH. WHICH IS A CORRECTION TO THAT IN OUR PRINTED PROGRAMME
