Jazzfest White Plains presents: The Theo Croker Quartet (Two Shows: 7:30 and 9pm)
September 11 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$25
Theo Croker is a storyteller who speaks through his trumpet. The GRAMMY® Award-nominated artist, composer, producer, thought leader and influencer projects his voice through the music. After seven years of sojourn in Shanghai, Croker crash-landed with an original sound on the 2014 Dee Dee Bridgewater-assisted album Afro Physicist. Following the success of Escape Velocity in 2016, he ascended to a new stratosphere with Star People Nation in 2019. The record garnered a nomination in the category of “Best Contemporary Instrumental Album” at the 62nd GRAMMY® Awards. Along the way, he has also lent his sound to platinum-selling albums by everyone from J. Cole to Ari Lennox while touring his band across the globe. In 2020, he hunkered down at his childhood home in the midst of the global pandemic and wrote his sixth full-length album, which is set to be released this fall on SPN Records via Sony Music Masterworks. Croker will be performing two sets, one at 7:30pm, and one at 9pm. Tickets are $25 for one of these shows, or $40 for both.
