Chris McIntyre

Christopher McIntyre leads a multi-faceted career in the contemporary arts as a composer, solo and ensemble performer, and curator/organizer. The diversity of his activities led Time Out New York to note “...with every passing week, trombonist-composer Chris McIntyre becomes more central to the new-music experience in New York.” (Nov. '09) He performs a wide variety of material on trombone and Nord synthesizer, ranging from fully notated concert works to open improvisations. Current projects include solo work (including the upcoming debut of his Meta Trombone program), leading TILT Brass, 7X7 Trombone Band, and “dhum rock” band UllU, and collaborative efforts including the creative music ensemble Ne(x)tworks. McIntyre's trombone skills have been utilized by Merce Cunningham Dance Co. (Legacy Tour including Park Ave Armory Events), Solomon R. Guggenheim MuseumTri-Centric Orchestra, SEM Ensemble, Flexible Orchestra, The Knights, and as a member of Either/Or. He has also participated in numerous composer-led projects, including those of Anthony Braxton, Zeena Parkins, John King, David First, Michael Schumacher, Elliott Sharp, Charles Waters, Jonathan Bepler (w/ Matthew Barney), and Anthony Coleman. Recordings of his work can be heard on New World, Tzadik, Mode, and Non-Site Records, and on

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
