esse Malone lives a double life as freelance musician and as a software developer. He discovered web development while Perl was still cool and music long before that. Upon completion of a mathematics degree at McMaster he entered the Jazz Performance program at the University of Toronto, graduating in 2009. He has studied privately with Anita McAllister, Sean Moody, Laurie Frink, John McLeod and Chase Sanborn. Major influences on trumpet include Miles Davis, Clifford Brown, Kenny Dorham, Blue Mitchell, Kenny Wheeler and Tom Harrell.
As a trumpet player, Jesse is something of a stylistic chameleon, keeping busy in a variety of genres inclding jazz, classical, and mariachi. He’s been known to appear in pit orchestras around the GTA and can be heard, among other things, with the Greater Toronto Philharmonic Orchestra, the regimental band of The Queen’s Own Rifles of Canada, Mariachi Fuego and as leader of the Jesse Malone Quintet.
