The Baltimore Chamber Jazz
The Terell Stafford Quintet
” Jazz is the art of storytelling – so if you’re not conveying a message, your music is trying to breathe without oxygen.” (JazzTimes) These evocative words were spoken by trumpet player and educator Terell Stafford. Having experienced an incredibly diverse performance career, this University of Maryland graduate is recognized as an incredibly gifted and versatile player who combines a deep love of melody with his own brand of spirited and adventurous lyricism. He has maintained the rich tradition of those who have influenced him, while making his own mark on tradition itself.
