The Music Hall’s Intimately Yours Series proudly presents the special performance of the Terence Blanchard Quintet happening on Thursday, August 1, 2013 from 7:30 in the evening onwards at the Historic Theater.
Blanchard is renowned in jazz circles as a remarkable trumpeter, composer, arranger, and bandleader. Vanity Fair writes, “He plays the most coolly expressive trumpet in jazz, transmuting the instrument’s repertoire of smears, growls, peeps and blasts into an astonishingly fluid language both luxurious and controlled.”
A veteran of Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers (recommended by Wynton Marsalis as his replacement in 1983), Blanchard began his own recording career in a band co-led with saxophonist Donald Harrison, delivering two albums for Concord and three more for Columbia before launching his solo career with his eponymous 1991 album, also for Columbia. He delivered nine albums for Columbia and Sony Classical.
Tickets for the show are sold at $28 for members and $32 for non-members.
