Trio featuring Mark Lockheart (reeds), Liam Noble (piano) and Jasper Hoiby (double bass). Debut album “The Day I Had Everything” released on Edition Records in November 2015. Follow up “Instinct” (Edition Records) released September 2017.
"A nominally 'chamber jazz' recording that comfortably bypasses any perceived restrictions and is consistently impressive in its scope in terms of style, emotion, texture and dynamics."
"Ian Mann enoys the music of Malija but sounds a note of warning regarding the future of Jazz in Wolverhampton."
"The real substance of Malija’s music often lies just below the surface. “Instinct” is an album whose secrets and subtleties become more and more apparent on subsequent listenings. "
