Glenn Zaleski

Glenn Zaleski is one of the most in-demand pianists on the New York City jazz scene. Originally from Boylston, MA, Glenn has made a name for himself playing with the likes of Ravi Coltrane, Lage Lund, and Ari Hoenig. His debut album, My Ideal, was released in March of 2015 on Sunnyside, and has been receiving critical acclaim: Downbeat Magazine named it “sublime”, Jazz Times called it, “an engaging set by a talent worth watching,” and the New York Times named the record a “strong statement”, praising its “fluent but unhurried sense of phrase”.

Glenn has also released two popular albums with the collective Stranahan/Zaleski/Rosato: Limitless (Capri 2013), and Anticipation (Capri 2011), as well as a duo record with his brother, saxophonist Mark Zaleski. (Duet Suite, 2010)
