Renowned Philadelphia jazz trumpeter Terell Stafford is a teacher, player, bandleader and composer. "I don't sleep much," admits the Temple director of jazz studies and chair of instrumental studies. As a teacher he’s credited with being unusually accessible, an attribute learned from his mentors. "They'd make time for me and my dumb questions. . . . I want to pass along to my students what some of these folks have passed along to me."
