Event Details

Joe Fiedler's "Open Sesame"

Joe Fiedler is a veteran New York City trombonist/composer/leader, who has collaborated with artists in genres ranging from avant-garde to salsa to pop, having plied his trade with such pacesetters as Eddie Palmieri, Cecil Taylor, Andrew Hill and Anthony Braxton; He’s created his own out-of the-box sounds with his long-standing Joe Fiedler Trio as well as with the low-brass quartet Big Sackbut. But for the last decade he’s also served as a music director, composer and arranger for the iconic children’s TV show Sesame Street. Fiedler’s worlds collide on his latest project, Open Sesame on which he delivers irreverent jazz interpretations of some of the show’s most beloved songs, including “People in Your Neighborhood” and “Rubber Duckie.”

“Fiedler pays indirect tribute to tradition while simultaneously turning the music inside out.”


The Band:

Joe Fiedler- Trombone, Arrangements

Steven Bernstein- Trumpets 

Jeff Lederer- Saxophones 

Michael Sarin- Drums

Sean Conly- Bass

"An uncanny ability to blur the line between avant-garde and mainstream jazz."


This event features a family friendly, pre-concert Audio/Visual presentation on how the music for Sesame Street is made as well as a Q&A of just how the musical direction for the beloved children’s educational program comes together.
