J.Q. Whitcomb

Trumpeter and composer J.Q. Whitcomb doesn’t just play jazz. He creates moods. From poignant, reflective tenderness to brash and boisterous exuberance, his compositions evoke adventures and romances, his trumpet playing the ever-adaptable thespian that commands every ear’s attention to the end.

J.Q.’s debut album Airports was released to critical acclaim in April 2011, combining spirited live recordings made during his quintet’s 4-year stint at JZ Club in Shanghai with studio recordings from studio sessions recorded in 2008 in Shanghai. All the tracks feature J.Q.’s quintet Five Below, and except for Mal Waldron’s classic ballad Soul Eyes, all the compositions are J.Q.’s originals. Airports is available for purchase on iTunes and other major online retailers.
