Night of the Ravished Limbs celebrates 20 years. 

A little over 15 years ago, MALABY/SANCHEZ/RAINEY recorded two albums at Barbès: Alive in Brooklyn vol 1 and 2. It’s almost hard to describe their music as being improvised - their chemistry is so extraordinary that the music sounds like it is composed in real time, with no space for narcissistic posturing. Theirs is a true collaborative effort. 
Tony Malaby - Saxophones
Angelica Sanchez - piano and Wurlitzer
Tom Rainey - drums

- "There's no leading, no following. We're in the moment together. They even know when I'm going to take a breath - I can feel it." Tony Malaby
- "It sounds simple to say, but the three of us have real creative chemistry together. Chemistry is the difference between just a group of good musicians playing in a room and something magical happening." Tom Rainey
- "The longevity of it means something - there's so much life and love in this group. As for the music, it's about the joy of surprise. For some people, the unexpected can make them uncomfortable - for us, it's inspiring." Angelica Sanchez

Starting in 2003, saxophonist and composer Michael Attias curated a weekly series named after, well, we are still not entirely sure, but as part of his Nights of the Ravished Limbs series, Michaël welcomed some of the greatest talent in new music. In total, a few hundred concerts including established names such as Barre Philips, Tim Berne, William Parker, Mark Helias, Anthony Coleman and Jason Moran, as well as an impressive list of since-risen New York talent including Mary Halvorson, Eivind Opsvik, Gerald Cleaver, Tony Malaby, and many more.
