Trumpeter, composer and arranger Freddie Hendrix, originally from Teaneck, New Jersey, has worked his way steadily during the last couple of decades to achieve his current position within the top echelon of first-call musicians whether it be as a jazz soloist, lead trumpeter or section player within a big band.

His versatility is evidenced by working with the best in the business as a member of the 'ChopHorns' horn section along with Ray Chew and the Crew at the BET Honors in Washington, DC from 2009-2013
