Jack Malmstrom Jack Malmstrom

Based in Los Angeles, Jack’s Cats delivers swing standards, forgotten jazz classics, and new original compositions performed live in an authentic period style by bandleader Jack Malmstrom. The band is comprised of the hottest young lions in LA's thriving vintage jazz scene.

Jack's Cats: The State of Swing In 2019 Jack’s Cats released its second album, The State of Swing Swing, consisting of 14 tracks of all new, original compositions delivered in Jack's Cats hybrid new/pld “Pre-Bop” style.


Clarinet, tenor sax and occasionally a Buescher C Melody Sax.


Exciting, intelligent, and fun, the Cats could swing any nightclub in the Golden Age of Jazz, yet they deliver a show that audiences connect with today.

Those that know jazz know they're good, those that don't just know they're fun.

Jack's Cats isn't a dance band. It's a listening band that's damn good to dance to.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
