Tom McIntosh

Trombonist, composer and arranger Tom (Mac) McIntosh was born and raised in Baltimore. After a stint with the army, he attended Juilliard and later became an active participant in the New York jazz scene as a trombone player and writer. Upon the death of Billy Strayhorn, Duke Ellington asked McIntosh to be his assistant.

He was a member of the famous Jazztet organized by NEA Jazz Masters Benny Golson and Art Farmer, and was one of the founders of the New York Jazz Sextet. Many outstanding NY-based instrumentalists of the 1950's and '60's migrated in and out of the band including Thad Jones, Art Farmer, James Moody, Tommy Flanagan, Roland Hanna, Richard Davis and others. McIntosh and James Moody have a long history of friendship and collaboration that dates to the 1950s when McIntosh played and wrote for Moody's bands and provided arrangements for some of Moody's best 1960's recordings....
