About Theo Croker

Trumpeter Theo Croker is an adventurous jazz musician known for his cosmically minded, spiritually enlightened take on post-bop, funk, and electronic-tinged fusion. The grandson of famed trumpeter Doc Cheatham, Croker first garnered attention in the 2000s playing straight-ahead jazz before issuing such stylistically expansive albums as 2014's Dee Dee Bridgewater-produced Afro Physicist and 2016's Escape Velocity. He further embraced a contemporary R&B and space-funk vibe on 2019's Star People Nation, earning a Grammy nomination in the process. Yet more genre-bending R&B and electronic textures marked 2021's BLK2LIFE || A FUTURE PAST and 2022's Love Quantum.
