Chris Mallec

My name is chris mallec and i am currently a Jazz Studies major at San Diego State University. I play in jazz combo V there but also play in the Univserity of San Diego's Jazz Band. My instrument obviously is the bari sax and I consider myself an “emerging artist” on it even though i am farirly young. I consider my level of improvisation high although working on chord changes and soloing is a big part of my practice routine.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
