About the Album

Seattle trumpeter Chad McCullough joins the long-line of creative trumpet players from the NW, including Thomas Marriott, Jay Thomas & Cuong Vu, with his own dynamic debut release. Featuring a set of original music composed for his 'dream team' of musicians, they explore compositions ranging from the seductive "Bock's Car," to the pensive "Lock Down," and the uptempo, spiraling "Nightmare's Dance." The all-star sextet features talents from Chicago and Seattle including saxophonists Geof Bradfield and Mark Taylor, and the rhythm section of Bill Anschell, Jeff Johnson and John Bishop, performing a wide-ranging set of arrangements which spotlight each player's diverse strengths in a comprehensive ensemble sound of the highest caliber.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
