“Trumpeter Chubb really plays it like he lives it if the sounds behind the title are any indication here. You can listen to this casually and hear a dandy, swinging modern session or you can dig a little deeper and hear that life force that just keeps some cats looking for the eternal, existential, mind blowing chord. Either path you take, you won’t be disappointed. The organic nature of his playing is what really makes this work which separates it from pretty sessions that you are glad you hear once but never seem to come back to. This is the real deal that keeps knocking it out of the park.”
— Chris Spector, Midwest Record
Chubb led his agile sextet through infectious modern-bop originals, his warm, sinewy tone superbly unraveled singable melodies.
— John Murph, Down Beat Magazine October 2017
Ted Chubb is a very talented trumpeter, composer, improviser, bandleader and educator. Ted is the total package, and most of all, he is just one great guy
— Christian McBride, bassist and recording artist
Playing against the bass and drums, Chubb blazed his own trail by improvising a series of song-like melodies.
— David Orthman, All About Jazz
Chubb a keen thoughtful soloist, was evocative on “Blue and Green.” He mixed hard hitting ideas with those that were tender, each one a smart melodic package. With a soft to gritty sound Chubb offered both swinging and abstract leaning ideas.
— Zan Stewart, The Star Ledger
Ted Chubb is both brassy and elegiac, his crisp, fervent tone somewhat evoking Booker Little.
— Mark Keresman, Inside Jazz NY Magazine
One of my favorite trumpet players!
— Cecil Brooks III, drummer, producer, club owner
