Forgive and Forget – Terell Stafford
Trumpeter Terell (TARE el) Stafford is one of a small group of straight-ahead jazz musicians at the top of the list for solo performance and education opportunities around the world, but rarely released records under his own name. A veteran of Bobby Watson’s burning bop band, Horizon, Stafford has mellowed his attack and refined his brilliance to wide public appeal. Check him in person some time at Jazz Port Townsend. Meanwhile, enjoy this great quintet recording.
