Jacob Garchik Trio
Trombonist and composer Jacob Garchik has worked with Steve Swallow, Lee Konitz, John Hollenbeck, Slavic Soul Party and the Kronos Quartet. Here he presents elegant and energetic compositions, inspired by Mahler, Indian Classical music, and Duke Ellington. His lithe trio features two of the most in-demand and creative young musicians in New York. "Odd and excellent, taut with paradox" - Ben Ratliff, the New York Times. www.jacobgarchik.com

Jen Baker - Solo Trombone
Jen Baker presents Lyrical Vibrations, improvised multiphonic solos, influenced by the sound Tibetan throat singing and the melodies of Gregorian Chant. Awarded a Meet the Composer grant, she commissioned and performed new solo works on the east and west coasts. Lyrical Vibrations, has been performed around the country including the International Society for Improvised Music Conference 2008 and can also be heard on her solo album, Blue Dreams.

Joe Fiedler Trio
His latest trio release,The Crab (Clean Feed), featuring bassist John Hebert and drummer Michael Sarin, has been hailed as "An excellent new record." (Ben Ratliff, New York Times) "When you listen to the music on The Crab," writes AllAboutJazz-New York's Editorial Director Andrey Henkin in the liner notes, "you know you're hearing the work of a major innovator. And few players on any instrument write tunes with as much breadth and diversity, using mutes, multiphonics, bravado on burners, avant musings, subversive marches and poignant ballads." www.joefiedler.com

The month of April is now officially (in the least official way possible) Trombone month in Brooklyn, and to celebrate, NYSWU is teaming up with Ibeam Music Studios to present their second annual Trombone Festival throughout the month.
