Grandson of the jazz legend Doc Cheatham, trumpeter and composer Theo Croker is a rising star in his own right, having performed with greats such as Benny Powell, Billy Hart and Marcus Belgrave. Merging genres and idioms, Croker pushes traditional compositional elements into new forms. After the 2014 release of his celebrated album AfroPhysicist, Croker is seen as one of the most promising and talented trumpeters working today.
