Trumpet player Rod McGaha is a potent combination of virtuosity and unfettered artistic passion. Jazz legend Clark Terry once said, “When I first heard Trees [Rod], I got that same feeling I got when I first heard Wynton [Marsalis]. Some musicians just have that thing!” A native of Chicago, Rod entered the jazz scene as a young prodigy and has since played with everyone from the legendary Max Roach and Grammy Award-winning bassist Victor Wooten to the Nashville Symphony Orchestra.
