I'm a trumpeter based in the Southern California area. My primary focus is with Jazz and Free Improv settings Along with that, I've worked in pop groups (rock/funk primarily), modern or 'contemporary' classical ensembles (often using graphically notated music), symphony, brass quintets and other musical settings.
I have four CDs in release. The most recent is, "Edge Study" a directed improvisation with Motoko Honda, (trumpet and keyboard synthesizor). Also there is "O.P.T.I.O.N.S." (improv based on graphic notation score), "Landscape With Figure" (Free Improv with Scott Fraser on electric guitar with digital processing). Earlier on is a Jazz standards release of duos and trios, with Ron Hershewe on guitar and Mike Flick on bass, entitled "Reflections". Information about O.P.T.I.O.N.S. can be found in "Notations21", a book on graphic notation, as well as at my website www.brucefriedmanmusic.com. I've also participated in releases for the improv ensemble Surrealestate and with groups led by Rich West and John Troubee.
The music can be heard at Reverbnation, my Facebook page, CDBaby and at www.brucefriedmanmusic.com .
