More about Joe Fiedler

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, Fiedler is the leader of the groups the Joe Fiedler Quintet, the Joe Fiedler Trio and Big Sackbut.
