With his fourth solo release (Back Home) on C.A.R. Records, Saxophonist Rob Maletick expresses his love for music by melting together the various styles of musical expression that have made him a sought after musician on stage and in the recording studio. During his 8+ years in the recording industry, Rob has played almost every style of music possible on his 3 saxophones, but has landed in Gospel and Jazz music for his foundation. Often called upon for his "anointed expression" as one radio DJ calls it, Rob has succeeded in creating his own style of Inspirational Jazz that is easily heard on Smooth Jazz radio and Gospel radio simultaneously.

Born and raised in the Washington D.C. suburb of Manassas Virginia, Rob was able to surround himself with music at an early age. Having 
music teachers for parents didn't hurt either. After High School, Shenandoah University became Rob's home for 4 years. Learning about the Music Business and Jazz Performance there put him in numerous situations in which he was able to perform with legends Billy Taylor, Bob Berg, and Randy Brecker. Rob credits saxophone professor Joe Eckert with guiding his playing in the right direction throughout the college years.

Big NY, Christian De Mesones, Willie Bradley and Elliott Levine will be stopping by to promote Saturday's Show at K-2 Lounge in Woodbridge VA
