“Theo Croker is a trumpeter, vocalist, composer, and bandleader whose powerful and eclectic take on modern jazz pays respect to the tradition of the music while moving the genre forward.” – The Hamilton
Grandson of the legendary trumpet player Doc Cheatham, Theo Croker’s own concept of jazz incorporates complementary genres such as salsa, fusion-rock, R&B, hip-hop, and blues. A promising trumpeter whose music is influenced by remarkable musicians such as Miles Davis, and Louis Armstrong.
After the performance, Theo Croker will have a live Q&A interview with Willard Jenkins, Artistic Director of the DC Jazz Festival and WPFW radio host.
This engagement of Theo Croker is made possible through the Jazz Touring Network program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
