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. The lineup includes alumni of the Royal Northern College of Music, Chethams School of Music, Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music, Royal Academy of Music, Leeds College of Music and more. Working outside of the traditional jazz or big-band arrangement, the Inner City Ensemble includes instrumentation such as French Horn, Oboe and Tuba.
