“…the most coolly expressive trumpet in jazz…” – Vanity Fair
Five-time Grammy award-winner Terence Blanchard has come a long way since his breakout days as the hot young trumpeter featured with Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers. That was back in the early ’80s. The New Orleans native is as well-known for his composing abilities as he is for his impressive trumpet soloing, winning praise for film-scores (Red Tails) and Broadway revivals (A Streetcar Named Desire). But, playing jazz is still his first love and Blanchard has assembled a first-rate band featuring the talents of Brice Winston – tenor saxophone; Fabian Almazan – piano; Joshua Crumbly – bass; and Kendrick Scott – drums.
