Since top-tier jazz and multiple Grammy-winning trumpeter and composer Terence Blanchard embarked on his solo recording career, the New Orleans-born and -based artist has traveled many paths musically, including delivering adventurous and provocative acoustic jazz outings of original material and composing over 50 soundtracks. Now, Blanchard powerfully and playfully journeys into a new jazz realm with his quintet, The E-Collective — an exciting zone of grooved fusion teeming with funk, R&B and blues colors. It’s a first foray into straight-up groove for Blanchard; come enjoy the dance-steeped party he and his quintet — guitarist Charles Altura, Fabian Almazan on piano and synthesizers, bassist Donald Ramsey, and drummer Oscar Seaton — have cooked up.
