The internationally-renowned New Orleans trumpeter, film composer, and standard-bearer of modern jazz innovation. brings his acclaimed quintet to Band on the Wall for one of only 2 UK dates this July.
‘His writing is superb and heartfelt, his playing perfect.’ Wall Street Journal
“He plays the most cooly expressive trumpet in jazz, transmuting the instrument’s repertoire of smears, growls, peeps and blasts into an astonishingly fluid language both luxurious and controlled.” Vanity Fair
Acclaimed for his Grammy nominated film scores for Spike Lee, Terence Blanchard is one of the few contemporary horn players who can truly claim to inherit the legacy of jazz giants Miles Davis, Lee Morgan and Freddie Hubbard. Fast and furious post-bop from a latter-day New Orleans hero and a super-charged new band. A major coup for Band on the Wall.
