Arthur Baron is a trombonist, multi-instrumentalist and composer. His defining work was with Duke Ellington, where he toured and recorded from 1973 – 1974.  He has worked with a host of luminaries, including Stevie Wonder, James Taylor, BB King, and Cab Calloway.  In 2006 he was a member of Bruce Springsteen's Seeger Sessions Band, touring Europe and the US.  There he performed on trombone, sousaphone, penny whistles & mandolin. He has received several commissions, including Jazz at Lincoln Center.  Art has been deeply involved with education, conducting workshop/clinics and guest appearances with a variety of age groups from pre-school to colleges and universities. In addition, Art was featured nightly as a soloist in the Broadway hit, AFTER MIDNIGHT, bringing his Ellington expertise to the production. Currently, he leads The Duke's Men, an ensemble of Ellington alumni, and is a mainstay at The Bowery Poetry Club in New York City, with his group Art Baron & Friends.
