Update Ted Chubb + Follow

Primary Instrument: Trumpet

Originally from Ashtabula Ohio, Ted grew up in a household surrounded by music. He began playing the trumpet at the age of 10, and found his passion for jazz at 15. Ted's passion for jazz led him to pursue music at the Ohio State University. During this time Ted performed with Midwest jazz legends Gene Walker and Bobby Floyd. He also toured regionally and abroad with the Afro-Rican ensemble.

In 2003, Ted enrolled in the graduate program at Rutgers University in New Jersey to study with master trumpet teacher William Fielder.

Ted has appeared on ABC’s Nightline news with the Cecil's Big band, and “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” performing with “Jersey Boys”. Ted has appeared at jazz festivals across the globe in Austria, Switzerland, France, and St. Lucia. In 2006 Ted was a participant in The Betty Carter Jazz Ahead program at the Kennedy Center....

“Chubb a keen thoughtful soloist, was evocative on “Blue and Green.” He mixed hard hitting ideas with those that were tender, each one a smart melodic package” Zan Stewart/The Star Ledger

“One of my favorite trumpet players” Cecil Brooks III/drummer, producer, club owner

“Chubb, with a soft to gritty sound offered both swinging and abstract leaning ideas.” Zan Stewart/The Star Ledger
