Terell Stafford spent his formative years as a sideman in alto player Bobby Watson’s Horizon quartet. He has also collaborated with McCoy Tyner, Wynton Marsalis and Jon Faddis and played in Jay Leno’s Tonight Show house band.
Stafford has recorded five albums as a leader, with his debut album in 1995 entitled Time to Let Go. He followed this album in 1997 with the critically acclaimed Centripedal Force. His third album as a leader was the popular Fields of Gold featuring the talents of Bill Cunliffe, Kiyoshi Kitagawa, Antonio Hart, and Rodney Green. His fourth release was the enthusiastically received New Beginnings, featuring Mulgrew Miller, Derrick Hodge, Dana Hall, Steve Wilson, Dick Oatts, Harry Allen, and Jesse Davis. Stafford’s latest release — which features his working band — is entitled Taking Chances and has been called his best album yet. Stafford has performed as a sideman on more than 80 albums.
An educator as well as a performer, Stafford currently holds the positions of Professor of Music and Director of Jazz Studies at Temple University in Philadelphia where he was a recent recipient of the University’s Creative Achievement Award. He is also a clinician for the prestigious Vail Foundation in Colorado and Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Essentially Ellington Program. Formerly, Stafford served as a member of the faculty for the Juilliard Institute for Jazz Studies in New York.
