Jazz Room Series at Home<br>CD Release Party: John Fedchock’s New York Sextet


John Fedchock is one of the veteran stars of the jazz trombone world.  He spent a number of years with the Woody Herman Orchestra, not only as one of the band’s main soloists but also as one of its most widely known arrangers.  An Eastman School of Music graduate and student of the great Rayburn Wright, he went on to tour with Gerry Mulligan, Louis Bellson, and Rosemary Clooney.  His New York Big Band, featuring his great arrangements, is well known in Manhattan’s jazz clubs.  Today’s concert features a six-piece group that includes such wonderful performers as saxophonist and Steely Dan veteran Walt Weiskopf, Vanguard Jazz Orchestra trumpeter Scott Wendholt, pianist Allen Farnham, first-call bassist David Finck, and drummer Eric Halvorson. This concert is a CD release event of the sextet's new album, Into the Shadows, released on Summit Records.
