Mitch Paliga



Mitch has a beautiful sound on the soprano and some very compelling compositions that I enjoyed a lot. A stellar band as well.
David Liebman

A Chicago resident since 1990, Mitch Paliga has worked with Randy Brecker, Vinnie Colaiuta, Rudy Linka, Akio Sasajima, Damon Short, Jo Ann Daugherty, Deanna Witkowski, Danny Gottlieb, Hard Art Group, Kimotion, The Temptations, Bob Newhart, Marie Osmond, The Nelson Riddle Orchestra, Victor Kraus, Fred Simon, Marlene Rosenberg, John McLean and recently joined the Lt.

In 1993 he was awarded the now defunct National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Study Grant to study with David Liebman.

In 2000 he received a City of Chicago Community Arts Assistance Program Grant to record some of my original compositions.
