Trombonist and arranger/composer Ed Neumeister has recently rejoined the William Paterson jazz staff, having returned to New York from a decade on the full-time faculty of the conservatory in Graz, Austria.  He is a veteran of many major big bands, including 15 years with the Duke Ellington Orchestra, and 19 years with the Mel Lewis Jazz Orchestra, which featured him as both an arranger and a major soloist.  His arrangements span many musical worlds and speak in many musical dialects, and he has performed with an equally broad array of artists, including Sarah Vaughan, Frank Sinatra, Gerry Mulligan, Aretha Franklin and Jerry Garcia.  His CD A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square was Grammy-nominated, and he has had long collaborations as resident arranger for Dutch Metropole Orchestra and the jazz orchestra in Budapest, Hungary.
