Trombonist/composer Joe Fiedler is known to critics as "among the most impressive trombonists to
emerge in the past couple of decades" (Harvey Pekar, Signal to Noise) and "an MVP in
configurations that range from salsa bands to the jazz avant-garde" (Time Out New York).
Based in New York since 1993, he has performed and recorded in a long and eclectic list of musical
settings ranging from pop (Firewater, Wycleff Jean, Jennifer Lopez) to Afro-Caribbean (Celia Cruz,
Ralph Irizarry, Eddie Palmieri) to jazz (Andrew Hill, Lee Konitz, Maria Schneider) to the avant-garde
(Borah Bergman, Anthony Braxton, Cecil Taylor).
In addition to work as a solo trombonist and leader of the groups the Joe Fiedler Trio and Big Sack,
Fiedler is an active member of such ensembles as Fast and Bulbous, Chris Jonas' The Sun Spits Cherries,
and the big bands of Satoko Fujii, Ed Palermo and Charles Tolliver among others
