Win Terence Blanchard's 'CHOICES' CD!
Concord Jazz is proud to announce the signing of three-time Grammy award winning trumpet player and composer Terence Blanchard. With more than 29 albums to his credit, Blanchard has established himself as one of the most influential jazz musicians and film score composers of his generation. Blanchard’s new album 'Choices' will be released on August 18, 2009.
Blanchard’s legacy has helped shaped the contours of modern jazz. As a musician he is a multi-Grammy Award winner, most recently winning earlier this year for his instrumental solo for “Be-Bop” on Live At The 2007 Monterey Jazz Festival. In addition to receiving the award, Blanchard performed live on the Grammy telecast along with other New Orleans artists including Lil’ Wayne, Allen Toussaint and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band and singer Robin Thicke.
Blanchard’s Concord debut, Choices, was recorded in his hometown of New Orleans at the Ogden Museum of Art. The album addresses the choices we all make in life – both as a society and on a personal level. Blanchard will premiere the project at the Ogden in late July, and the show will be filmed for an upcoming documentary.
Accompanying Blanchard on the album are longstanding band members Fabian Almazan on piano, Derrick Hodge on bass, Kendrick Scott on drums, Lionel Loueke on guitar and newcomer Walter Smith lll on saxophone, all of whom significantly contributed to the album's compositions. Guest artists on Choices include writer, speaker, educator and activist Dr. Cornel West and singer, musician and composer Bilal. West performs spoken word pieces on the album with Bilal providing vocals on several of the tracks.
