Album Notes
The Michael Malis Trio is a forward looking, compositionally motivated improvising ensemble based in Detroit, Michigan. The trio’s debut album, “Lifted from the No of All Nothing”, featuring all original compositions by Malis, will be released on July 17. The group will be completing a tour of the Midwest and East Coast, as well as performing locally in the Detroit area.

“Lifted from the No of All Nothing” is a song-cycle that deals with the creative tension between compositional control and improvisational freedom. Inspiration comes from a variety of sources, including many of the archetypal figures of the jazz pianist-composer tradition, such as Andrew Hill, Thelonious Monk, Cecil Taylor, and Bud Powell. The band is also influenced by the great paragons of Detroit’s own musical legacy, including Marcus Belgrave, Geri Allen, Robert Hurst, Jaribu Shahid, and Vincent York, all of whom members of the trio have performed and/or studied with.

Consisting of pianist Michael Malis, bassist Ben Rolston, and drummer Stephen Boegehold, the Michael Malis Trio performs weekly at Cliff Bell’s, a club in downtown Detroit, either as a trio or as the rhythm section of the Marcus Elliot Quartet, featuring saxophonist Marcus Elliot. This standing engagement has served as an incubator for the band’s original music, and the music from the upcoming release has been largely developed in these performances.
