“a great album. Any fan of relaxed jazz will not be disappointed.”
"The spirit of Chet Baker is alive and well in the performance of Chicagoland trumpeter and vocalist Jeff Hedberg… his light tenor voice and rather spare approach in trumpet improvisation are very reminiscent of the almost fragile effluence of the late great Chet Baker."
“…the powerful “double threat” combination of his smooth flugelhorn sound and his easily accessible vocals will win people over.”
Jeff Hedberg is a jazz singer, flugelhorn and trumpet player. His musical training includes a Master of Music in Jazz Pedagogy from Northwestern University and a Bachelor of Music in Music Education from Elmhurst College.
During his time at both institutions Jeff had the opportunity to perform with both the EC Jazz Band and the NU Jazz Ensemble, both well-known big bands. During which he played both lead trumpet and jazz chair.
Through his schooling, as well as his own pursuits, Jeff has studied with Doug Beach, Mark Colby, Jackie Allen, Brenda Lualdi, Bob Rummage, Mark Streder, Libby York, Jeff Deustch, Phoebe Fuller, Rob Parton, Don Owens, Joel Spencer, Mike Kocour and Judy Roberts.
