A LIFE IN A DAY This is the last album made by Australian alto sax legend David Ades with his New York mates. Helias, Cleaver and Malaby have an uncanny hook-up and rapport formed over years working trio as "Open-Loose" but with the addition of Ades' alto the sound takes on another dimension. A Life In A Day is the quartet's second recording in two years following A Glorious Uncertainty. The music is gritty and honest; passionate, immediate and forthright. It is played with open minds and full hearts in the spirit of true brotherhood

David Ades (as), Tony Malaby (ss, ts), Mark Helias (b) Gerald Clever (d) Rec. 18 September 2013. It is a testament to Ades determination that this album was recorded at all, that it is as good as it is merely confirms that not even severe adversity could stop the creative process. The plain fact is that Ades was in the last stages of cancer induced illness, but that did not arrest his need to get this album in the can. Such is his playing the illness is totally absent from these recordings
David Ades and Friends Album Launch in Sydney 24th of March at the 505 Cleveland St with Cameron Undy bass, Matt Keegan tenor saxophone, David Goodman drums.
It was a superhuman effort: David Ades was dying of lung cancer when he recorded this album. He knew it would be his last and he made it his best. Who knows what monstrous willpower was required to play the alto saxophone for the five-hour session, the results of which are now released posthumously. Ades' illness could not knock the extraordinary singing vitality out of his playing. If his sound is sometimes less robust than previously, it still carries a phenomenal life force, while his lines jumble exuberance and sadness together into one mile-wide emotion
Traced overhead is filled with mysterious, glancing references to remembered piano music, but is grippingly coherent. And as if all this were not enough, in the Eliot settings that are his Op. 1, the 17-year-old Ades already proved himself a song-writer (subtle response to words, beautiful, singable lines, vivid keyboard imagery) of rare talent.
