According to McCoy Tyner, Terrell Stafford is “One of the great players of our time, a fabulous trumpet player.”

Born in Miami, Terell Stafford received a degree in music education from University of Maryland in 1988 and a degree in classical trumpet performance from Rutgers University in 1993. Originally a classical trumpet player, Stafford soon branched out to jazz with the University of Maryland jazz band.

His career in jazz soon picked up and has played with McCoy Tyner, Christian McBride, John Clayton, Steve Turre, Dave Valentin, and Russell Malone and on stages such as Carnegie Hall and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. He recently released a CD entitled New Beginnings featuring a number of other new up-and-coming musicians such as bassist Derrick Hodge.

In addition to his position at Temple, Terell Stafford has also worked with the Juilliard School‘s jazz program, at theLincoln Center‘s Essentially Ellington program, and with the 2006 All-Alaska Jazz Band.

Be prepared. Tonight will be epic!
See you at the show…
