Tom Tallitsch - Duality

Tenor saxophonist Tom Tallitsch is one Philadelphia's musical gems. He has lived in the Philly-area for nearly ten years. In that time he has established himself as a major player on the Philadelphia jazz scene, working in such top clubs as Ortlieb's and Chris's Jazz Caf and Zanzibar Blue, and has become a prominent jazz educator.

Duality is more than a milestone - it's a moment in time," says Tallitsch. He has described this album as the culmination of many nights playing gigs. “It was an opportunity for me to document this period in my life. All these gigs I'd been playing. I wanted to show what was coming out of my playing." Duality is an intimate offering, showcasing Tom's talents not only as a performer but as an arranger and composer. Not looking for typical songs from the bebop canon nor afraid to tackle difficult material, Duality interprets such jazz standards as Wayne Shorter's “Infant Eyes" as well as Lulu's “Back In Town." Tom also reworks Benny Golson's “Stablemates" as his own “Mablestates." On “Big Sky," an airy, mid-tempo piece, Tallitsch demonstrates he is also a capable composer in his own right. Accompanying Tom on Duality is David Manley on guitar. Manley's familiarity with Tom offers a perfect compliment to his lush tone. The two have done numerous gigs together and it comes through on Duality.

With such a promising offering as Duality, Tom Tallitsch proves to be an artist to watch and enjoy. For more information on Tom and his new release, Duality, visit www.tomtallitsch.com.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
