Russell Malone Quartet
New York Times Malones warmth, conversational phrasing and lack of hurry, can range all over the history of the guitar in American culture, from rural blues ideas to sophisticated jazz harmonies. His current release All About Melody on High Note Records, is a perfect example of swinging warm-toned bop.
Kurt Rosenwinkel (DownBeat Blindfold Test) Obviously, we are in the capable hands of a master. The relaxed quality of everything that is being played gives it such a warm feeling. To play that stuff is extremely hard. This is the best of the best must be Malone !
JazzIs Russell Malone is one of the signature guitar players of his generation. His long-standing participation in Ron Carter's Golden Striker Trio plus his own brilliant quartet, bare witness to his singular tone, refined listening skills, amazing chops, and limitless imagination.
Los Angeles Times Malone addresses tradition on his own terms, as a relentless swinger and a master of all tempos. He imbues hardcore jazz-with a soulful, instantly recognizable instrumental voice and sophisticated sense of harmony
