A longtime fixture on the New York, SF Bay Area and European and now Los Angeles jazz and classical scenes, Neumeister has been composing and leading his own groups since 1978.
Ed has recently assembled the crème de la crème of Los Angeles Jazz and Studio musicians into ENJO (Ed Neumeister Jazz Orchestra) to perform and record his works. Mostly commissioned from European Bands and Orchestras, with the exception of a few pieces currently being played by the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra where Neumeister played for almost 20 years, most of the pieces will be heard for the first time in the US including at least one World Premiere written especially for the premiere concert December 22 2008, at the Jazz Bakery in Los Angeles....

Ed gave two clinics both of which were very instructional, factual and full of fun...
