Internationally touring New England saxophonist, bandleader & educator brings his jazz virtuosity and high-energy original compositions in a one-night-only return to the Rubber City! Featuring Theron Brown, Anton Defade, James Johnson III.
Internationally touring musician, Mark Zaleski, has distinguished himself as a uniquely dynamic soloist, multi-instrumentalist, and band leader. He has performed with a diverse group of notable artists including Dave Brubeck, Christian McBride, Ian Anderson, Connie Francis, Mahmoud Ahmed, Rakalam Bob Moses, the Either/Orchestra, Tiger Okoshi, Jason Palmer, and Matt Savage. At the young age of 33, he has established faculty positions at Berklee College of Music, New England Conservatory of Music, and Longy School of Music at Bard College.
Mark’s high-energy jazz show (fronted by two fiery saxophones) brings forth the highest quality in jazz virtuosity, but brings a tinge of modern rock in his compositions resulting in an electrifying and engaging live show. Every audience member comments on how much fun the band is to watch perform!
In 2017, Zaleski released his second record, “Days, Months, Years”, a record where Zaleski performs on alto saxophone, soprano saxophone, and double bass; one of the first of its kind in the jazz genre.
Additionally, Zaleski is active in many musical projects including the Omar Thomas Large Ensemble, The Brighton Beat, the Either/Orchestra, Nyota Road, a duo project with Glenn Zaleski, Chris Hersch and the Moonraiders, The Ayn Inserto Jazz Orchestra, Mehmet Sanlikol and WhatsNext, and plays bass in a popular Boston-area soul band he founded called Planet Radio.
