Terell Stafford, trumpet
The Naples Philharmonic Jazz Orchestra is joined by trumpeter Terell Stafford for a night of sizzling jazz in Daniels Pavilion.
Terell Stafford 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 can be heard performing on over 130 albums, including Diana Krall’s Grammy®-nominated From this Moment On (2006). Stafford was also a member of the Grammy-nominated Bobby Watson’s Tailor Made Big Band for their album Tailor Made.
