Update Tito Carrillo + Follow

Primary Instrument: Trumpet

Born: December 29, 1972

Tito Carrillo is one of the finest trumpeters to emerge from Chicago’s rich jazz trumpet legacy. He is an accomplished trumpeter, educator, bandleader, and composer, and since 1996 he has been a fixture in the Chicago jazz and latin music scenes.

A native of Austin, Texas, the list of artists he has performed, recorded, and toured with is as varied and impressive as his skill set. He has worked with Chicago heavyweights Willie Pickens, John Moulder, Ryan Cohan, and Dana Hall; big bands such as the Woody Herman Orchestra (Frank Tiberi, director), the Chicago Jazz Ensemble (Bill Russo and Jon Faddis, directors), the Chicago Jazz Orchestra (Jeff Lindberg, director), and the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra (David Baker, director); jazz greats such as drummer Louis Hayes, trumpeter Jon Faddis, and saxophonist Vincent Herring; Salsa legends such as Andy Montañez, Tony Vega, and Cheo Feliciano; latin jazz figures such as Orlando “Maraca” Valle and Paquito D’Rivera; and pop icons Quincy Jones and Phil Collins....
