The John Fedchock New York Big Band makes a special appearance at Iridium in NYC on Tuesday September 8, performing two sets at 8pm & 10pm. Made up of New York's jazz elite, the group is stocked with NYC's premier soloists featured in a variety of settings, including straight- ahead big band charts, as well as more progressive and innovative styles. The performance will showcase Fedchock's Grammy-nominated arranging, with material from all four of the band's outstanding CDs including it's latest release Up & Running, which spent eight weeks in national jazz radio's Top Ten, and had The New York Times applauding its “Cheerful Syncopation, Served With Spit-and-Polish Precision." A mix of fire and finesse, the John Fedchock New York Big Band combines restless innovation and a reverential approach to tradition, responding to every challenge with equal parts passion and poise.
