Ted Poor

Since moving to New York City in 2003, drummer / composer Ted Poor has quickly established himself as a new voice on the jazz/improvised music scene. Jazz Review writes, "[Ted] has an uncanny ability to shape the music and a refreshingly unique, organic approach to playing the drums." This unique approach has caught the ears of many of the city's most established musicians. Ted is a regular member of the Ben Monder Quartet, the Cuong Vu Trio and the Jermoe Sabbagh Quartet. In addition, Ted has recently worked as a sideman with Chris Potter, Bill Frisell, Maria Schneider, Kermit Driscoll, Lucia Pulido, Kate McGary, Marc Ducret, David Fiuczynski and John McNeil

Drummers as Bandleaders: An Alternative Top Ten Albums

Read "Drummers as Bandleaders: An Alternative Top Ten Albums" reviewed by Chris May

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
