Boston-based multi-instrumentalist Mark Zaleski comes to San Francisco to celebrate the release of his second album, Days, Months, Years. The album includes clever compositions combined with choice standards reimagined to fit the style of his band of 10 years. Zaleski performs on saxophone this evening as he puts his own spin on modern jazz by incorporating his love of rock music with his jazz training.
