Jazz luminaries such as; the Heath brothers, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Dizzy Gillespie, Shirley Scott, Grover Washington Jr., Roy Haynes among many others were known to TC growing up simply as, “aunts and uncles.” Given his deep roots from birth in the Music, TC has had the opportunity to work with many of the finest jazz musicians of the past 30 years.
