The Mark Zaleski Band
The self-titled “Mark Zaleski Band” album includes music that mixes straight ahead modern jazz with a rock flare. Many of the tracks include non-standard time signatures, but the music is performed in a way that is audience accessible, singable, and danceable. Some classic standard MZB jams are featured on this recording like “The Moon” and “They Told Each Other Sweet Lies and Danced”.
A collection of jazz standards connected by 4 improvisations based on a Glenn Zaleski original tune result in the “Duet Suite.” Much care was put into the interpretation of each standard melody, and solos are not long-winded. The impressive flow of this record from start to finish make for a wonderful listening experience that can only by captured by two siblings that have watched each other grow from the very start of it all.
