Bronx native Mitch Frohman is one of the top saxophonist/flutists in the music scene. After graduating from Columbus H.S. (Bronx,N.Y. class of 1971), he went on to get his Bachelor of Music Education degree from The University of Miami (class of 1975). His versatility in different styles of music has led him to many opportunities playing with the greatest musicians in the world. For 25 years he was the sax and flute soloist with the TITO PUENTE ORCHESTRA & LATIN-JAZZ ENSEMBLE.
Continuing that tradition, Mitch is the sax/flute soloist and co-leader of The MAMBO LEGENDS ORCHESTRA (the former musicians of The Tito Puente Orchestra). Some of the great salsa/Latin-Jazz artists he has played and or recorded with are MONGO SANTAMARIA, CELIA CRUZ, La LUPE, EDDIE & CHARLIE PALMIERI, PAQUITO D’RIVERA, CHICO O’FARRILL ORCH., MILLY, JOCELYN Y LOS VECINOS, CHEO FELICIANO, JOE CUBA, and many more. He has also played and or recorded with CYNDI LAUPER, PAUL SIMON, DAVID BYRNE & THE TALKING HEADS, and BLOOD,SWEAT and TEARS.
Currently, besides leading the critically acclaimed Latin-Jazz and salsa dance band THE BRONX HORNS & The Eddie Torres Mambo Kings Dance/Show Orchestra, Mitch is touring the world as the sax/flute soloist with the Grammy Award winning SPANISH HARLEM ORCHESTRA.
In addition to being an in-demand performer, Mitch is an accomplished clinician for students from elementary age to college/conservatory level (he was the first sax/flute instructor at the world famous LOS ANGELES SALSA CONGRESS). And last (but not least), his signature solo sound can be heard somewhere in the world, every day, as he is the saxophone soloist on the Theme song of the mega-hit T.V. show SEX & THE CITY.
