Atop both the performing and jazz educational fields, trombonist Conrad Herwig’s professional performance career commenced with big band stints with a number of iconic and legendary figures, including Miles Davis, Joe Henderson, Eddie Palmieri, Tito Puente and Frank Sinatra, among many others. Equally well-versed in the be-bop, hard bop and modern jazz musical languages, and armed with composition and arrangement credits for both small and large ensembles, Conrad is able to step in to virtually any situation and deliver – making him one of the most in-demand jazz artists and educators at major universities and conservatories around the world. Herwig will weave his musical mastery into an ensemble that features NWA’s finest musicians, both professional and amateur.
