Joe Fiedler Quartet – Album Release ≈ March 23rd / 7:30pm


Joe Fiedler’s Quintet featuring Jeff Lederer, Pete McCann, Rob Jost and Michael Sarin at Systems Two Studios 09-28-16

“Fiedler uses superb technique, which includes playing chords (multiphonics), and a wit worthy of trombonist Ray Anderson to invigorate straight-ahead jazz, paying indirect tributes to tradition while simultaneously turning the music inside out.” – Jazziz Magazine

Trombonist/composer Joe Fiedler is known to critics as “among the most impressive trombonists to emerge in the past couple of decades.” (Harvey Pekar, Signal to Noise) Based in New York since 1993, he has performed and recorded in a long and eclectic list of musical settings ranging from jazz (Andrew Hill, Lee Konitz, Charles Tolliver) to the avant-garde (Borah Bergman, Anthony Braxton, Cecil Taylor) to Afro-Caribbean (Celia Cruz, Ralph Irizarry, Eddie Palmieri) to pop (Marc Anthony, Wycleff Jean, Jennifer Lopez). In addition to his quintet, Fiedler is the leader of the groups, the Joe Fiedler Trio and Big Sackbut. His diverse discography features more than 100 recordings, including eight as a leader.
