Pat Mallinger began playing the saxophone when he was 11. He received his Jazz Studies degree from North Texas State University on a “One O'clock Lab Band” Scholarship. He lived and performed in Los Angeles, Dallas, Boston, and Japan, before establishing Chicago as his home in 1990. He is a coleader of Sabertooth, which has been the mainstay band at the Green Mill Lounge each Saturday night since 1992. He is also heard around Chicago performing with the Bobby Lewis Quintet, Art Hoyle Quintet, and the Pat Mallinger Quartet, to name a few. Pat has been the saxophone mentor in the Ravinia Jazz Mentor Program founded by Ramsey Lewis since its inception in 1994. Through that outreach program he mentors city youth through jazz performance and clinics within Chicago Public High Schools.
