Jim Malloy

I like to think of myself as a new, although not a young voice. Growing up in what was then called “Sugar Hill”, in New York City, the strains of Big Band Jazz (my parent’s music), Be-Bop, Blues and Mambo could be heard everywhere. I sang, listened to and enjoyed the sounds of my generation, Rhythm and Blues, Soul, Latin and Doo Wop music: the sounds of Dizzy, Eckstein, Sinatra, Prysock, Noro Morales, Louis Armstrong, Louis Jordan as well as the music of my mother's gospel choir filled our apartment. During my teens and as a young man in the Air Force, I sang with a number of vocal groups. After leaving the military, I tried singing and song-writing, but to earn a living, I drifted into Graphic Arts . “Making a living” has had me alternating between Graphic Designing and traveling as a Newsreel Cameraman. I've gathered five Emmy awards for cinematography/videography along the way. I recently retired from my “day job” as a video engineer for NBC Nightly News with Tom Brokaw. I book myself as a single jazz vocalist working in small combos at different venues in the metropolitan area, availing myself of the great jazz sidemen that can be found here in New York City.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
