An appearance at Lincoln Center presenting a Cannonball Adderley Tribute led to Wess Anderson's invitation to perform at LJF with trumpeter Terell Stafford, drummer Matt Wilson, pianist Benny Green, bassist Rodney Whitaker, and vocalist Joanna Pascale.
Listen to Terell talk about how he got his start, how he was inspired to teach (he taught at Litchfield Jazz Camp for many years), and has performed on the Litchfield Jazz Festival many times before.
Listen to the full interview on the WBGO.org blog here.
