7pm
Chad McCullough/Dan Cray Duo
Chad Mccullough - Trumpet
Dan Cray - Piano

Chicago-based Trumpeter/composer Chad McCullough... called "a thoughtful improvisor with technique to spare" by Allaboutjazz.com, Chad's various albums have received wide critical- acclaim. His stable of collaborators is a diverse collection of unique musicians and speaks to the depth of his musical palette. Dan McClenaghan writes, "He is a rare instrumentalist who makes each note sound as if it were imbued with a deeper meaning. Certainly a player with great chops, his approach is one that is measured and deliberate, often introspective, sometimes gorgeously melancholic, and one that employs a continuity of mood and atmosphere that the best recordings have."  Chad is a sought after voice in the international jazz world, and lives in Chicago, IL where he is on jazz faculty at DePaul University. As a trumpet player who obsesses over sound, Chad proudly en
dorses Hub Van Laar trumpets and flugelhorns, and Facet Mutes.
