Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Fedchock is a graduate of The Ohio State University with degrees in Music Education and Jazz Studies. John Fedchock’s illustrious career in jazz has spanned nearly three decades.

John’s critically acclaimed John Fedchock New York Big Band has become a marquee group, showcasing Fedchock’s trombone and arranging as well as the band’s all-star soloists. The band’s four CDs for the Reservoir Music label, “New York Big Band”, “On The Edge”, “No Nonsense”, and “Up & Running”, have all received high praise from critics, and extraordinary success on national jazz radio charts. “New York Big Band” and “On The Edge” both earned 4 1/2 star reviews in DOWNBEAT magazine and were listed in DOWNBEAT’s “Best CDs Of The 90’s”.
Fedchock has toured with T.S. Monk, Gerry Mulligan’s Concert Jazz Band, Louie Bellson’s Big Band, the Bob Belden Ensemble, the Manhattan Jazz Orchestra, and the Carnegie Hall Jazz Band, and has performed at jazz festivals and concert halls around the world. As a solo artist, he appears throughout the United States and has toured abroad as a guest trombonist/composer/conductor.
