Sensational Trumpeter TERELL STAFFORD at USF’s Monday Night Jazz,
November 5 in USF Concert Hall
The next concert in the USF Monday Night Jazz Series will feature one of today’s premiere players,
trumpeter Terell Stafford, with the school’s top-flight jazz orchestra, Jazz Ensemble I, on November 5. Now
in its 22nd season, this series is presented in the USF Concert Hall, sponsored by the USF School of
Music and the Tampa Jazz Club.
Terell Stafford, originally trained as a classical trumpeter, has been called by the legendary McCoy Tyner
“one of the greatest players of our time.” In addition to his own recordings, Stafford has performed in the
bands of his mentors including Tyner, Benny Golson, Frank Wess, and many others. And he’s been
featured for years as a member of the Clayton Brothers and the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, in residence at
New York’s Village Vanguard.
Stafford is also a prominent figure in jazz education. A former faculty member at The Julliard School and
Jazz at Lincoln Center, he is now Director of Jazz Studies at Temple University.
This concert is the second of five in the series, which began with an outstanding evening of Ellington
featuring bassist John Lamb and USF Faculty artists. Three more exciting programs are planned for early
2019, with information and tickets at www.tampajazzclub.com. And the students in Jazz Ensemble I look
forward to sharing the stage with one of today’s jazz masters, Terell Stafford, on November 5!
