John Fedchock’s illustrious career in jazz has spanned over four 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, Fedchock’s multifaceted talents have led him to become one of NYC’s premier jazz artists. His critically acclaimed John Fedchock New York Big Band has become a marquee group showcasing his trombone and arranging as well as the band’s all-star soloists. The band’s recordings have appeared in jazz radio’s Top Ten, and in recognition of his writing skills, Fedchock is a two-time Grammy nominee for Instrumental Arranging. Small group projects with his quartet and sextet put his distinct solo voice more directly in the spotlight.

Fedchock began his career touring with the legendary Woody Herman for seven years, and he served as chief arranger for Herman's last two Grammy-nominated albums. He has also toured with T.S. Monk, Gerry Mulligan, Louie Bellson, Jon Faddis and the Carnegie Hall Jazz Band.

Born in Cleveland Ohio, Fedchock is a graduate of Ohio State University and holds a master’s degree from the Eastman School of Music. He is an in-demand clinician and conducts seminars and workshops worldwide. As a solo artist, he appears throughout the United States and abroad performing as guest trombonist/composer/conductor. His collaboration with the prominent instrument maker XO Brass to create a professional line of jazz trombones has proven to be an overwhelming success in both innovative design and industry popularity.

All concerts are free and open to the public. Live performances will take place at Wolfson Campus Auditorium, 300 N.E. Second Ave., Miami, FL 33132. Building 1, Room 1261. All performances will be livestreamed, except for those occurring on Tuesdays.
