Jazz Directors Series #1
Since top-tier jazz and multiple Grammy-winning trumpeter and composer Terence Blanchard embarked on his solo recording career with his eponymous Columbia Records album in 1991, the New Orleans-born and -based artist has traveled many paths musically, including delivering adventurous and provocative acoustic jazz outings of original material.
With this new project, Terence has teamed up with some of the UK’s most remarkable emerging musicians. Working outside of the conventional jazz or big-band line up, this ensemble includes instrumentation such as French Horn, Oboe and Tuba.
