One of Chicago's most in demand trombonists, Luke Malewicz brings his trademark fire to the masses with his breakthrough group, Heritage Quartet. Featuring a who's-who of Chicago's finest — trumpeter Chad McCullough, bassist Patrick Mulcahy, and Jon Deitemyer on drums — the quartet leads the listener on a journey of original compositions, as well as arrangements of traditional Polish folk songs. 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."
