Called “a brass-wielding force of nature” by the Los Angeles Times, composer/ trumpeter Terence Blanchard stops by with his GRAMMY-nominated quintet The E-Collective, joined by the acclaimed Turtle Island Quartet, performing music from Blanchard’s 2021 Blue Note release Absence, inspired by the great Wayne Shorter.
Two-time Oscar nominee and six-time Grammy-winner trumpeter/composer Terence Blanchard has been a consistent artistic force making powerful musical statements concerning pivotal moments in American culture–past and present. Blanchard is celebrated not only for his albums and live performances but also for creating strong backdrops to human stories, from his expansive scores for Spike Lee films—such as his Oscar-nominated BlacKkKlansman (2018) score—to his opera, Fire Shut Up in My Bones, which became the first opera by an African American composer to premiere at the Met.
