Terence I. Culpepper Terence I. Culpepper

Composer, guitarist and bassist Terence Culpepper has been involved with several groups in the New York metropolitan area before starting “Since When?”

He began his studies at The Guitar Study Center in New York and later with jazz guitarists Pat Martino and Bill Connors (of Chick Corea's “Return to Forever” fame). While attending college at St. John's University he began writing music and soon thereafter began to lead his own groups during the early 1980's.

His first outing as leader was a five-piece group, “Exposure” and has performed in The Atrium at CitiCorp Center, The Cellar Restaurant, the 1984 Harlem Week Festival (which featured the future EMI/ Manhattan recording artist Najee), Downstate Medical College, Bistro Filipino and at The Manhattan Proper Cafe.

Mr. Culpepper is currently performing with “Since When?” and producing new artists for his production company, The Westfall Music Group.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
