The American singer Ann Malcolm grew up in Iowa, USA. She began piano at the age of four, listening nearly daily to her grandmother who had been a pianist for silent movies. After adding the saxophone at age ten, Ann says, "I knew very young that I wanted to be a musician. In Iowa Ann had many opportunities to build up a strong musical foundation. She received her Bachelor of Music degree at the University at Iowa, and it was there she had her first engagements as a jazz singer. Ann received her Master of Music degree (saxophone performance) at New England Conservatory of Music in Boston with the highly respected professor, Joe Allard.

Ann proved to be an exciting and expressive vocalist at the Charles Mingus Memorial Concert. After attending saxophone master classes in France with Jean-Marie Londeix and Daniel Deffayet she moved to Switzerland to study further in the Konzertklasse at the Musik-Akademie der Stadt Basel with Iwan Roth. On the saxophone Ann has played and toured with the Tonhalle Orchestra Zürich, Opera Orchestra Zürich, Basel Symphony Orchestra, Hessischer Rundfunk Orchestra, as well as with the saxophone trio Europort.

"The Crystal Paperweight", ABEAT records, Italy, was released in July 2010. Arranged for octet by the great trumpeter, composer and arranger Tom Harrell, this very special work includes 4 new lyric versions of Tom Harrell's compositions and a second recording of Before Dawn ("Sail Away"), previously recorded by Ann in 1994 at Van Gelder Studio, New Jersey, with Kenny Barron.

As a producer, singer, lyricist and saxophonist Ann combines all facets of her musical talents on this new project. Ann is Professor for vocal jazz and workshop at the Hochschule für Musik, Abt. Jazz, in Basel and since Oct. 2005, is Professor for vocal jazz at the Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst in Mannheim, Germany. She is also internationally active at workshops and contests.
