Trumpeter, composer, and arranger Theo Croker is an adventurous musician whose adept skills find him at home whether playing standards, swinging post-bop, or more groove-oriented electric jazz. A native of Leesburg, Florida, Croker is the grandson of the late great jazz trumpeter Doc Cheatham. From 2003 to 2007, Croker attended the music conservatory at Oberlin College. During this time he earned the Presser Music Foundation Award, which funded his debut album, 2006's Fundamentals. In 2009 he released his sophomore album, In the Tradition, and in 2014 he released his third solo album, the Dee Dee Bridgewater-produced Afro Physicist. ~ Matt Collar
