Todd Herbert

Todd Herbert began his life as a musician at the age of 10 and has not looked back. Beginning on clarinet, he progressed to alto saxophone, eventually settling on the tenor sax. Herbert continued his music studies in high school and with private teachers in his hometown of Evanston, IL.. Advanced studies came at the University of Miami, considered one of the country's foremost training grounds for jazz musicians.

Herbert has now been playing professionally for 15 years, first with the Charles Earland Quartet. His stint with Earland took him around the US and his first taste of the international scene with stops in Germany, Japan and London. He then joined trumpet virtuoso Freddy Hubbard and as a member of his quintet toured for over two years.
