Tenor Saxophone – Tony Malaby. Trumpet, Composed By, Liner Notes – Dave Ballou. Recorded December 2000.
While this format may deter listeners unaccustomed to the aesthetic demands of free jazz, On This Day has much to offer adventurous ears. There's the lineup, for starters: Ballou on trumpet, Billy Drewes on soprano and alto saxes, Tony Malaby on tenor sax, Mike Formanek on bass, and Tom Rainey on drums. These highly esteemed players appear in constantly shifting combinations. They may goad one another to shrill heights of cacophony on one track, or pull back and plumb dark, mysterious corners of introspection on the next.

Trumpeter/Composer Dave Ballou can be heard in a variety of settings; from solo trumpet improvisations to large ensembles performing notated compositions. His recordings as a leader can be found on the Steeplechase, CleanFeed and pfMentum record labels. Ballou is Professor of Music at Towson University in Towson, MD where he is the leader of the Jazz/Commercial Music program.
On This Day reminds me of recordings made by modern jazz players of the post-hard-bop era in response to free jazz, like the Don Friedman/Attila Zoller collaborations in the ’60s. The musicians here sound like they usually play inside, but for On This Day they eschew preset structures. Ballou is a fine trumpeter, and his front-line mates Billy Drewes and Tony Malaby are convincing contributors on alto and tenor, respectively (Drewes also doubles on soprano).
