Studies and Trombone at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts.
Besides his undergraduate teaching duties, Tony donates one thousand
dollars each year for the Tony Lada Award for Excellence in Performance
Studies, given to a student who has demonstrated both academic
and creative excellence in the study of jazz improvisation at
Berklee. Tony has been playing professionally for the past forty-six
years and therefore it is no surprise that he is well known to
Boston Jazz audiences and the international music community as
one of the most prominent jazz trombonists on the scene today.
addition to leading his own quartet at local jazz clubs, Tony
can be heard every Saturday afternoon at the Caravan in Revere.
Tony is especially pleased about his yearly weeklong summer association
with JAZZ VERMONT where he directs improvisation workshops and
leads and performs with the JAZZ VERMONT SEXTET.
to becoming a Berklee faculty member, Tony played with the Glenn
Miller Orchestra, with Woody Herman, and with Buddy Rich.
recordings have been critically acclaimed both locally and internationally.
THE VERY THOUGHT OF YOU, on Sterling Bell Records, was a Boston
Music Awards nominee for best jazz album in 1988.
