Trombonist John Fedchock achieved great notoriety for over two decades with his New York big band. In forming the John Fedchock NY sextet, he has created an agile group featuring sophisticated arrangements and originals, putting the focus on the group's all-star Big Apple soloists. Live At The Red Sea Jazz Festival gives us a close-up look at the sextet in action during their dynamic set at this iconic international event. Joining Fedchock on stage is trumpeter Scott Wendholt, tenor saxophonist Walt Weiskopf, pianist Allen Farnham, bassist David Finck and drummer Dave Ratajczak.
