Tony Kadleck - Bio

Tony Kedlack
Trumpet


Throughout his career, Tony Kadleck has been praised as a highly effective sideman, who has lent his hand to numerous musical activities. He is currently one of the most sought-after trumpet players in the New York area. While attending the New England Conservatory in Boston, Kadleck studied both classical and jazz music, a task that would later benefit him, as he went on to perform and record with the Boston Pops Orchestra. In 1986, Tony was asked to join the trumpet section of the Buddy Rich Band, and later that year, decided to move to New York.

After graduating from the Manhattan School of Music in 1989, Kadleck did some touring with Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand, and Blood, Sweat & Tears. Eventually, the NY studios kept Tony too busy to leave town, and he found himself recording with a number of artists, including Luther Vandross, Michael Jackson, Elton John, and Celine Dion. Kadleck also spends time playing a wide variety of live concerts, having performed with Stevie Wonder, Ella Fitzgerald. He has played on countless CDs including Tony Bennet/Lady GaGa “Cheek to Cheek” and Tony Bennett Duets.
