This unique approach has caught the ears of many of the city's most established musicians. Ted is a regular member of the Ben Monder Quartet, the Cuong Vu Trio and the Jermoe Sabbagh Quartet. In addition, Ted has recently worked as a sideman with Chris Potter, Bill Frisell, Maria Schneider, Kermit Driscoll, Lucia Pulido, Kate McGary, Marc Ducret, David Fiuczynski and John McNeil. Ted has toured extensively as a sideman or leader/guest soloist in Europe, the US, and recently, Korea.
