Andrew Malloy, a New Hampshire native, attended the University of Massachusetts graduating magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Music Education degree. He continued his education at The Juilliard School where he received a Master of Music in Performance. He lived in Los Angeles where he worked as an active freelance musician for 40 years. As a studio player he recorded hundreds of film scores as well as TV shows and commercials. He performed as a regular member of the Pasadena, Santa Barbara, and New West Symphonies and The Crown City Brass Quintet. In addition, he worked with most of the leading musical organizations in the Los Angeles area: Los Angeles Philharmonic, Los Angeles Opera, Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, and Long Beach Symphony. He taught trombone at California State University, Northridge, Masters University in Santa Clarita, Pepperdine University, Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, California Lutheran University, and the University of California, Santa Barbara.

This album is a two CD set consisting entirely of solo works for trombone that he commissioned. He co-produced two successful Christmas albums, CAROLS FROM THE BELLS, which feature 16 top Los Angeles trombonists performing arrangements of Christmas carols. These albums were created as a funding resource for The Hearts of Music, a non-profit organization formed to financially assist musicians and their families dealing with serious health issues as a means to assist them financially. In the recording field, Malloy recorded for many well-known film composers and performed on hundreds of film soundtracks.
