This Side of Strayhorn
“This is an extraordinary band playing extraordinary music.” The Wall Street Journal
Known for being a gifted and versatile player with a voice all his own, Terell Stafford combines lyricism and a deep love of melody with a spirited, adventurous edge. This uniquely expressive, well-defined musical talent enables Stafford to dance in and around the rich trumpet tradition of his predecessors while making his own inroads.
Stafford’s recent album, This Side of Strayhorn (MAXJAZZ), was heralded by critics as one of the best albums of 2011. For his Bistro run, Stafford will be joined by his dynamic quintet featuring saxophonist Tim Warfield, pianist Bruce Barth, bassist Rodney Whitaker, and drummer Dana Hall.
