Biography: Mala Waldron Birthday: May 30 Jazz/Soul Vocalist, pianist and songwriter, Mala Waldron is a native of New York. Mala's musical approach reflects the many varied styles of music she was exposed to as a youngster. She's the daughter of renown jazz pianist/composer, Mal Waldron ("Soul Eyes") and credits both her parents (her mother is a fine jazz pianist & vocalist as well) with giving her a strong and varied jazz foundation. Her maternal grandmother, also a pianist, was from the caribbean islands and introduced young Mala to Calypso.

Of her earlier influences, she also credits her older brother with introducing her to the best in R&B. At the age of 7, Mala began formal piano lessons. Later, she joined her first band, a local R&B group. This marked the beginning of her career as a full-fledged gigging musician -- she was only 15. Within a year, that band was signed to RCA records.

After graduating from high school, she went on to expand her knowledge of music studying jazz piano, voice and composition at SUNY College of Old Westbury with multi-reed player Makanda Ken McIntyre. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree. Mala performs regularly in the Tri-State area, and has toured internationally as well in Japan, France, Belgium, Italy, China and Russia. Recordings to her credit include a duo project with her father entitled "He's My Father" (Tokuma Communications/Japan). The following year, her solo debut, "Lullabye" was released on the same label.

Her most recent release, "Always There", is an independent project (Soulful Sound Music) which was named by JazzUSA as one of the Top 20 Jazz CDs of the year. taken from all about jazz mala waldron Read more on Last.fm.
