Ted Chubb - Gratified Never Satisfied (UNIT RECORDS June 28, 2017)

Ted Chubb is an American trumpeter that delivers a fresh approach to modern jazz, drawing the listener in with an individual voice, striking originals and reimagined classics. Ted tells a musical story reminiscent of the sophistication of Miles Davis, Chet Baker, Frank Sinatra, and Ahmad Jamal, mixed with the funky swagger of Lee Morgan, interpreted through the lens of a new era, and a wide palate of diverse musical influences, told through the culture of the blues he was nourished.

"Ted Chubb is a very talented trumpeter, composer, improviser, bandleader and educator. Ted is the total package, and most of all, he is just one great guy." - Christian McBride
