New World School Jazz Orchestra with Special Guest Trombonist John Fedchock
The New World School of the Arts Jazz Orchestra under the direction of Jim Gasior is nationally recognized as one of the elite high school jazz bands. Six times this band has finished in the top three in Wynton Marsalis's Essentially Ellington Competition and twice it has won the entire competition. On November 5, the MJC is bringing the NWSA Jazz Orchestra to the Open Stage Club with special guest John Fedchock.
A talented bop-based trombonist, John Fedchock is also quite notable as a big band arranger. Fedchock graduated from Ohio State University and the Eastman School Of Music. In the 1980's he spent seven years playing and touring with Woody Herman's Orchestra and, although he had chances to solo, it was his swinging charts that gained him the most attention. In addition, Fedchock toured with Gerry Mulligan's Concert Jazz Band, Louie Bellson's Big Band and Bob Belden's Ensemble, among others.
