One of Chicago's most in demand trombonists, Luke Malewicz brings his trademark fire to the masses with his breakthrough Quartet. Featuring a who's-who of Chicago's finest — Pianist Andrew Lawrence, bassist Patrick Mulcahy, and Jeremy Cunningham on drums — the quartet leads the listener on a journey of original compositions, as well as arrangements of traditional Polish folk songs and standards.
Live, this dynamic ensemble showcases an engaging interplay, building off of years of working together in various combinations. It's here that Malewicz shines, not only showing his effectiveness as a leader, but also his virtuosity, causing trombone legend Luis Bonilla to exclaim, "he not only continues to display a total respect for tradition, but frankly, I’m absolutely blown away by his unabashed reach for the future."
