John Fedchock Productions

To add to his already diverse list of multiple talents, John Fedchock has established himself as an in-demand record producer in New York City. In addition to his own critically acclaimed albums, Fedchock has produced recordings for artists including Woody Herman, Frank Rosolino and Kim Pensyl, as well as numerous projects with a variety of jazz orchestras from New York City and across the U.S. His intricate understanding of the big band format has created a special niche for Fedchock as a producer. As a highly regarded arranger and bandleader, his firsthand knowledge of the inner workings of the jazz orchestra has given him an informed perspective necessary for the complex task of overseeing a large ensemble recording project. His relaxed demeanor and his focused attention to detail have proved to be beneficial elements in creating and maintaining a smooth and efficient production process free of unnecessary obstacles, enabling recording artists to devote themselves purely to their music. Fedchock’s keen ears and studio expertise have also led many to enlist his talents as mix producer or post-production consultant, adding the essential finishing touches to their recordings’ final stages. His technical knowledge and musical insight, along with his articulate, astute way with words has also made him a sought-after liner notes author, ultimately involving him in every aspect of album production, from beginning to end.

“Not only is John Fedchock a great player, writer, arranger, and clinician, but he has really big ears (metaphorically speaking). Seldom have I worked with someone who possesses all the tools necessary to be a great producer. I know his organizational skills will produce a session that will run like clockwork. His personnel choices produce top shelf results and his people skills always coax the beauty and brilliance from them. He can listen to a take and ferret out the finest flaw instantly and fix it without compromising the integrity of the performance. His patience and attention to detail are remarkable, whether he is working on his own project or for another artist. I have always looked forward to working with John since the first John Fedchock New York Big Band recording in 1992.”
