Musician

Alan Ferber

Known internationally as a virtuoso jazz trombonist, Alan also shines as a bandleader. His current project on Fresh Sound New Talent (Alan Ferber Nonet, “Scenes From An Exit Row”) beautifully displays his unique ability to effectively lead an ensemble through an array of intricate compositions while consistently delivering imaginative solo improvisations. Comprised of some of New York City’s most compelling young players, “Ferber’s arrangements bring out the best of the members of his group, who are inspired by their musical surroundings and alternately play as one…” (Budd Kopman, AAJNY) The Alan Ferber Nonet is in constant pursuit of finding new directions in the jazz idiom

Read "Stranger Than Fiction" reviewed by Jack Bowers
