wrote the following book:
   alternate position system for trombone. - unk84-159821: malone, tom
   new york, synthesis publications, c1974.  v. cm.
   lc call number: mt465 .m2

     from: unknown
he's playing in paul schaffer's band on "late nite with david letterman"  

     peary lomax sez:
tom has a couple of (very nice!) jazz cds, does extensive studio work, has written and/or scored for tv and movies ("sister act") and continues to do so, and still has time to be a helluva nice guy. he plays a variety of instruments, and plays them all very well, but his trombone work (including a method book or two)  is very, very special. he's currently with the letterman band and, as usual, is involved in several musical projects.

      from: aj wilkes (
tom malone and
lou marini were both definitely saturday night live members. they're both also in the blues brothers movie.
