Throughout the history of jazz, groups with a three-horn frontline have been among the more important ensembles of the music. While still giving plenty of space for individual soloists, the configuration has offered unique, creative writing options while maintaining a sleek and mobile blend, avoiding the feeling of a heavier large-ensemble. Immortal recordings by greats including Louis Armstrong, Art Blakey, Miles Davis, Horace Silver, Charles Mingus and John Coltrane set an extremely high standard.
John Fedchock’s illustrious career in jazz has spanned over three decades. Since his emergence on the scene in 1980, Fedchock has established himself as a world-class trombone soloist, a heralded bandleader, and a Grammy-nominated arranger. An in-demand performer and writer in New York City for over twenty years, his multifaceted talents have led him to become one of NYC’s premiere jazz artists.
It’s a pleasure to present John Fedchock’s newest music with this close-knit and seasoned group – keeping the distinguished sextet tradition.
