Baltimore, MD 21201

"TKQ" Tedd Baker, Kris Funn & Quincy Phillips

"a bottomless well of musical energy--he can probably cut any saxophonist in town, and hold his own with any saxophonist, period." - Washington City Paper

"a grandly talented improviser" - Allaboutjazz.com

"when he steps in front of his own combo, Baker's liable to bring the house down; he has a broad, powerful tone and a sure-footed improvisational attack that winds and zags. It's confident and questioning, all at once." - Giovanni Russonello

Recorded on 4/23/21

Tedd Baker, sax
Kris Funn, bass
Quincy Phillips, drums

Tedd Baker's all-original 2006 debut CD “Mugshots” received rave reviews from JazzTimes, and All About Jazz. Tedd's latest release "Duos Volume 1" is a reverent nod to the classic duo configuration, and features tenor/soprano saxophone paired in various duo settings with piano, bass, drums, guitar, and voice. Tedd is also featured on many recordings such as steel pan and composer Victor Provost's "Bright Eyes," the Taylor/ Fidyk Big Band "Live At Blues Alley," Ben Patterson Jazz Orchestra's "Vital Frequencies feat Chris Potter," and The Young Lions "Live At Bohemian Caverns."
