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 (three trombones and tuba).

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, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. Fiedler’s worlds collide on his new album, 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.”

“[An] uncanny ability to blur the line between avant-garde and mainstream jazz.”
– Downbeat

“Fiedler pay[s] indirect tribute to tradition while simultaneously turning the music inside out.” – Jazziz

“Trombonist Joe Fiedler has been an MVP in configurations ranging from salsa to the avant-garde.” – Time Out New York

“… a Renaissance Man for Our Times. Trombonist, arranger, composer, teacher, family man and workaholic Joe Fiedler has built an eclectic career, yet his latest project may be his most ambitious: having plied his trade with such pacesetters as Eddie Palmieri, Cecil Taylor, Satoko Fujii, and Anthony Braxton… Fiedler is now unveiling Open Sesame: expansive jazz versions of classic songs from the PBS children’s television program Sesame Street, for which he has served as an assistant musical director since 2009.”
