A trumpet player, composer, and educator living in Upper Peninsula Michigan where he is the Director of Jazz Studies at Michigan Technological University, Meckler is an Edwards Instrument Co. Performing Artist and Clinician. He leads The Adam Meckler Orchestra (AMO), an 18 piece big band that plays his original compositions. The AMO’s debut album ‘When the Clouds Look Like This’ was listed among 2014’s Best Jazz Releases by iTunes. Adam tours and records with The Hornheads (Prince, Cory Wong), Youngblood Brass Band, and Nooky Jones.

“Meckler’s trumpet playing is impressive in his wide range on the horn. He easily shifts into the upper register, displaying a brawny tone when he does, sounding clear but with a roughness that adds character to his voice. And speaking of voice, Wander, his second album with his quintet, contains some strong writing, with intriguing melodic lines, rhythm twists and vamps that make an engaging tug at the ear.” – Stanley On Music
