Greetings! My Name is Jesse Klirsfeld
I am a professional trumpet player from the city of Long Beach, New York.
I will be the lead trumpet for the National Tour of “A Bronx Tale”, 2019-2020. Oct- May.
I also play at venues in NYC and throughout the tri-state area.
I hold a master’s degree as well as a bachelor’s degree in jazz trumpet from the prestigious music program at the University of Miami. During my time in Miami, I had the opportunity to record for music luminaries such as: Gloria Estefan, Gospel artist David Bratton, The Smith Street Band, the Concert Jazz Band at the University of Miami, and many other independent artists. I have also performed with highly respected musicians like: Broadway superstar Michael Fienstein, jazz legend John Faddis, Latin pop star John Secada, RnB pioneers the Mills Brothers and many others. I am a well-rounded musician who can perform in musical settings of all kinds, however, I specialize mainly in: Jazz, commercial/lead, latin music, Broadway pit orchestra, and singer songwriter situations in which I arrange horn sections for recording.
As well as a performer, I am also a teacher, arranger, composer, and bandleader. I spend most of my time either recording or performing in wedding bands, big bands, singer songwriter groups, original pop artists, small jazz groups, and brass quintets. Currently, I hold residence in both New York state and South Florida.
