Review: Trombonist Fiedler has been the music director and arranger for the iconic children’s TV show Sesame Street for the last decade. Fiedler’s worlds collide on his new album, on which he delivers irreverent jazz interpretations of some of the show’s most beloved songs with a top-notch ensemble.
