TerrelA Tribute to the Music of Billy Strayhorn and Lee Morgan
Wednesday, March 11, 2020
7:45pm

Terell Stafford, acclaimed trumpet player based in New York, has been hailed as “one of the great players of our time, a fabulous trumpet player” by piano legend McCoy Tyner. Stafford is recognized as an incredibly gifted and versatile player.  He combines a deep love of melody with his own brand of spirited and adventurous lyricism. Stafford’s exceptionally expressive and well defined musical talent allows him to dance in and around the rich trumpet tradition of his predecessors while making his own inroads. 

Stafford has performed with groups such as Benny Golson’s Sextet, McCoy Tyner’s Sextet, Kenny Barron Quintet, Frank Wess Quintet, Jimmy Heath Quintet and Big Band, Jon Faddis Jazz Orchestra, Carnegie Hall Jazz Band and Dizzy Gillespie All-Star Alumni Band. Stafford performed on Diana Krall’s Grammy nominated CD From this Moment On (2006) with the Hamilton-Clayton Jazz Orchestra.  He can be heard on over 130 albums of which his latest recording, This Side ofStrayhorn, was hailed as “genius” and “the first must have album of 2011.”


Stafford is the Director of Jazz Studies and Chair of Instrumental Studies at Temple University, founder and band leader of the Terell Stafford Quintet, and Managing and Artistic Director of the Jazz Orchestra of Philadelphia (JOP). www.terellstafford.com
