Hello! My name is Joey Kendrick, and I am a very cool and interesting guy. I also write music, and I play trumpet and flugelhorn.

I grew up in Kansas City, then I went to school at Indiana University and William Paterson University. Now I’m based in New York City.

I’ve studied with a lot of great musicians and composers who helped me become as cool as I am today. They include Jim McNeely, Kevin Norton, Pete McGuinness, Cecil Bridgewater, Rich Perry, Pat Harbison, Brent Wallarab, and David Baker.

I have composed and arranged pieces of music to feature a lot of really good improvisors (sometimes because they asked me to, sometimes because I just felt like it) including Ingrid Jensen, Rich Perry, Jamey Aebersold, and Pat Harbison.

In January 2016, I completed the six-movement Suite for Jazz Ensemble. A lot of people liked it, and I was awarded the BMI Foundation’s 1st Annual David N. Baker Jazz Composition Scholarship.
