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.

“I want to tell you what a fantastic time we all had with Ed. His playing was nothing short of spectacular! I don't think that I
have ever heard anyone play the trombone with such technical mastery, with such a great sound from the top to the bottom of
the horn and with such originality. As with any virtuoso, his horn has become an extension of his being.
My band, Northern Arizona University Jazz One, had the opportunity to perform some of Ed's big band music - 3 original
pieces and 2 arrangements of jazz standards. Each of the charts was a pleasure to learn and play. His writing is some of the
freshest, most original and challenging music I have come across.
Ed gave two clinics both of which were very instructional, factual and full of fun
