Description

Trumpeter Terell Stafford pays tribute to one of the greatest song writers of our time with his new recording "This Side of Strayhorn." Billy Strayhorn is widely considered one of the greatest composers of our time, and his three-decade-long collaboration with Duke Ellington furnished the American songbook with a number of timeless classics. Trumpeter Terell Stafford's sense of melody and uniquely expressive sound make him ideal for Strayhorn's repertoire. Produced by Grammy-winning bassist and composer, John Clayton, "This Side of Strayhorn" offers a refreshing and unique interpretation of a number of Strayhorn's famous compositions. Stafford enlists his working quintet featuring saxophonist Tim Warfield, pianist and arranger Bruce Barth, bassist Peter Washington and drummer Dana Hall. When not on the road touring with his own group, Stafford is an integral member of bands including The Clayton Brothers Quintet, Bobby Watson & Horizon and Matt Wilson's Arts & Crafts. Stafford is also the director of Jazz Studies at Temple University.
