A 19 year veteran of the Harry Connick Jr. Band in which he was musical director, lead alto, and feature tenor soloist (see quartet CD Other Hours), Ned has been playing professionally for over 30 years. He is a well known figure on the New York scene. He plays regularly at various clubs in the Village. He has put out 4 CD's under his own name, all of which feature his unusual harmonic approach born out of extensive study of all the eras of Jazz. He currently plays regularly at Fatcat (Wednesdays at 12.30) and Smalls.
