Stripling is a Basie Band alumnus, known as a spectacular trumpeter with a wide range, beautiful tone, and the ability to blend together many influences in his own style. The happiness he exudes through his trumpet, his vocals and his words is reminiscent of Louis Armstrong, yet very much his own.
Stripling is the artistic director of the Columbus Jazz Orchestra and performs with his own quartet and pops orchestras around the world. He can be heard on CDs with Tony Bennett, Natalie Cole, Lena Horne, Sonny Rollins, Paquito D’Rivera, Gerry Mulligan, J.J. Johnson, Benny Green, the Joe Henderson Big Band, the Count Basie Orchestra, the GRP All-Star Band, and the Carnegie Hall Jazz Band, as well as many others.
