"a roving pioneer of the alto saxophone" - Boston Concert Reviews

"11 years seems ages for a band to work together, but the days, months and years have borne beautiful fruit in this new recording by the inventively evolved bassist (and saxophonist)) Mark Zaleski." - New York City Jazz Record

"Mark Zaleski has created a body of work where we can now hear his evolution as a composer. `Days, Months, Years' is aptly titled, for it describes a vast and textured musical landscape of what seems like a musical journey over a period of time. Within his compositions are linear explorations that bring us on a pathway of varied musical surfaces that keep us absorbed throughout the project." - WICN Radio, Worcester, MA.

The Mark Zaleski Band

Featuring: Mark Zaleski - Alto/Soprano Saxophones
Jon Bean - Tenor Saxophone
Jeff D'Antona - Piano
Mark Cocheo - Guitar
Danny Weller - Bass
Oscar Suchanek - Drums

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.
