BIO / CREDITS


Chris Tedesco has distinguished himself as a one of the top call trumpet players on the music scene in Los Angeles since 1987. Equally at home performing jazz or classical trumpet, chamber music or orchestral pieces, Chris's sound has been heard on numerous recordings for Movies, TV shows, TV Commercials, CD recordings, and live dates with some of the biggest names in the industry. He is also very active in the business end of music as a musician contractor/project manager for some of this recorded and live work as well. Chris's jazz CD "Living the Dream" received rave reviews and a number 8 ranking on the jazz radio charts in 2010.

Chris is a graduate of the University of Miami in Florida, where he studied Trumpet with Gil Johnson, former principal trumpeter of the famed Philadelphia Orchestra under Eugene Ormandy.

Some recent credits on the Los Angeles studio scene include the TV shows American Horror Story, FEUD, Timeless, Making History, 12 Monkeys, I Love Dick and numerous cartoons and TV cmmercials.
Look for the upcoming movies The Greatest Showman, Legacy, and ones I can't name yet.....Chris was also the Orchestra Contractor/3rd Trumpet for the Dream Works movie Need For Speed, still current on the theme music for Showtime's Homeland, Christina Aguilera's movie Burlesque, The Green Lantern cartoon series, Beware the Batman cartoon series, HBO's Family Tree, ten songs for TV's The Playboy Club and Disneyland's Main Street Music with Dean Mora (on period cornet parts), American Idol iTunes download sessions, and many more recordings listed below. Chris is the leader of the Angel City Horns, still current and very active in the studios where we have recorded the hit tunes for many shows and artists such as "Don't Cha Wish" for the Pussy Cat Dolls, and Christina Aguilera's "Candyman" and "Nasty Naughty Boy" songs, and many more I can't remember!
