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.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
