Terell Stafford, Tim Warfield, Bruce Barth, Peter Washington, and Dana Hall

Listen to Samples

Billy Strayhorn is widely considered to be one of the greatest composers of our time, and his three-decade-long collaboration with Duke Ellington furnished the American songbook with a number of timeless classics. Trumpeter Terell Stafford's sense of melody and uniquely expressive sound make him ideal for Strayhorn's repertoire. Produced by Grammy-winning bassist and composer, John Clayton, "This Side of Strayhorn" offers a refreshing and unique interpretation of a number of Strayhorn's compositions. Stafford enlists his working quintet featuring saxophonist Tim Warfield Jr., pianist and arranger Bruce Barth, bassist Peter Washington and drummer Dana Hall.
