Sunday, 23 November 2014

“Mallinger's partnership in Sabertooth with tenor saxist Cameron Pfiffner recalls the fabled duo of Zoot Sims and Al Cohn, tenorists who decades earlier battled against each other one moment, traded silken ballad phrases the next. Add the terrific organist Pete Benson and drummer Ted Sirota into the mix, and you understand why this engagement has thrived for so many years." -
Chicago Tribune
Cameron Pfiffner and Pat Mallinger

For 22 years, the Sabertooth jazz quartet has held the "After Hours Jazz Party" every Saturday night (well, technically Sunday moring) from midnight until 5 A.M. at the Green Mill. Formed in 1990 by saxophonists Pat Mallinger and Cameron Pfiffner, Sabertooth explores a variety of jazz idioms from soul jazz and hard-bop to modal and post-bop in the quartet which also includes Pete Benson on the Hammond B3 organ and Ted Sirota on the drums. The band's repertoire includes many original compositions, such as "It's surely gonna flop if it ain't got that Bop" and "Dr. Midnight" as well as standards and interpretations of rock tunes. Join the swinging, all-night party on Saturday, November 29th at the Green Mill.
