Terence Blanchard is one of today’s foremost jazz composers.

Starting May 27th, Jazz Standard welcomes back the GRAMMY Award–winning trumpeter/composer Terence Blanchard and his fiery new electric band E–Collective as they celebrate their album exploring the intersections of jazz, R&B, funk and fusion. Fabian Almazan won the 2014 DownBeat Critics Poll for Rising Star Pianist and has worked with Blanchard since 2007; Charles Altura is a fleet–fingered young guitarist and a member of piano giant Chick Corea’s recent assemblage of firebrands, The Vigil. The versatile bassist Donald Ramsey has played with a multitude of New Orleans musicians including Dr. John, Irma Thomas, and Marva Wright, while drummer Oscar Seaton has lent his explosive musicality and deep grooves to recordings and tours with Ramsey Lewis, Lionel Ritchie and Lee Ritenour. As for the leader, Terence Blanchard is “a brass–wielding force of nature” (The Los Angeles Times) and “a trumpeter of expressive urgency and a composer of expansive vision” (The New York Times).

This week, Mr. Blanchard hosts this fabulous line-up:

  • Terence Blanchard – trumpet
  • Fabian Almazan – piano
  • Charles Altura – guitar
  • Donald Ramsey – bass
  • Oscar Seaton – drums

See you at the show!
