The sextet performs Fedchock originals as well as sophisticated arrangements of well-known standards and jazz classics, putting the focus on the group’s all-star soloists. The JFNYSextet’s most recent release, “Into The Shadows” features Fedchock’s playing and small-group writing at full strength in what Downbeat magazine calls “…one of his most poised and assertive recordings yet.”

“John’s energetic & vibrant trombone work with his sextet will amaze your ears. When you experience the levels of intensity they are playing, you’ll know you’re in the presence of jazz royalty, no doubt!”

“The tunes are strong and the ambience is warm. Relaxed yet purposeful, creative without being abstruse, it’s an accessible lesson in modern improvisation”

“This tight sextet is astounding. The trombonist wows with his crisp arrangements that recall his big band charts. This is straight ahead jazz that will please both traditionalists and those who like things a bit more modern.”
Jazzscene Magazine

“Fedchock’s composing/arranging talents are far from absent, exemplified by the sextet, which has a contemporary large ensemble flavor.”

“The trombonist and his confreres offer scintillating and attention catching performances. This is modern music that is symmetrical and harmonious and therefore a joy to the ear. Fedchock makes sure that the emphasis is on the music, not on the technical wizardry of the players. A refreshing approach in these days of large egos.”

“Fedchock is joined by seasoned sidemen who are comfortable in their own skins. They play freely but without an agenda of any kind, just solidly doing what they do better than almost anyone else. Astride it all stands John Fedchock and his incomparable trombone playing, which seems to have no limit, technically or musically. He covers all tempos with equal ease and slips comfortably through the most awkward harmonic corners. He’s inventive and melodic and simply never puts a foot wrong.”

“Fedchock’s arrangements are, by design, quite spacious and allow for a lot of room to work through generous solos and sparring opportunities with joyful faculty.”

“Straight from the shoulder, unpretentious jazz”
– Jazz Journal

“a lineup of dazzling New York post-bop talent”
– Boston Post Gazette

“inspired hard bop not dissimilar to Horace Silver’s halcyon days”
– Jazz Weekly

“The tunes sport sturdy, functional arrangements as blueprints for improvising, each one creating a different musical setting for the musicians, especially the leader, whose velvety smooth tone and slippery dexterity constantly sparkle and surprise in compelling, witty solos.”
– New York City Jazz Record

“Fedchock is skilled at arranging new approaches to oft-played standards, in addition to writing his own challenging originals, which draw from earlier generations while incorporating his own innovations.”
– Hot House
