Terence Blanchard w/ The E-Collective & The Turtle Island Quartet

New Orleans trumpet player and composer Terence Blanchard has garnered many honors over his distinguished career, which had an auspicious start when childhood pal Wynton Marsalis, moving on from Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, recommended Blanchard as his replacement. Since going solo he’s received acclaim for his work on movie soundtracks, most notably those of Spike Lee, with whom he’s collaborated since the ’90s. He has won five Grammy Awards, with 14 nominations, most recently Best Instrumental Composition in 2019 for the haunting, evocative “Blut und Boden” from Lee’s “BlacKkKlansman.” The Metropolitan Opera Company will open its 2021-2022 season with his second opera, Fire Shut Up in My Bones.
