Terell Stafford Quintet: Celebrating Lee Morgan

Terell Stafford Quintet: Celebrating Lee Morgan

Jazz at Lincoln Center

With trumpeter Terell Stafford, saxophonist Tim Warfield, Jr., pianist Bruce Barth, bassist Peter Washington, and drummer Billy Williams. Grammy Award-winning trumpeter Terell Stafford is one of the top modern musicians playing swinging jazz. His band credits include McCoy Tyner, Benny Golson, Jimmy Heath, and the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, and his experience as a cherished educator is just as extensive. In 2015, he released a critically acclaimed tribute album to trumpet icon Lee Morgan, and he now brings that classic repertoire to Dizzy’s. It’s a perfect fit for Stafford, who manages to honor and capture the spirit of this beloved music while also contributing his own musical voice and energy as a bandleader. “One of the great players of our time” – McCoy Tyner
