Terence Blanchard to premiere brand new suite for Jazz Directors Series tour

Terence Blanchard will premiere a brand new suite when he performs across the UK with The Inner City Ensemble next week.

The five-part suite, entitled Bud, Not Buddy, was commissioned for the John F. Kennedy Center’s Jazz Education department and is based on the Newbery Medal winning book by Christopher Paul Curtis.

Blanchard and The Inner City Ensemble, who consist of thirteen talented, young jazz musicians from across the UK, will unveil the piece at Band on the Wall on Thursday, ahead of shows in Warrington, Bradford and Kendal.

We’re very excited to hear this new music performed by such a unique ensemble. Tickets available now.
