Terence Blanchard

Friday 1 August 2008 23:30-1:00 (Radio 3)

Jez Nelson presents a gig by renowned New Orleans trumpeter and composer Terence Blanchard, recorded this July at Ronnie Scott's jazz club in London. Playing a set made up of tracks from his 2008 Grammy award-winning album A Tale of God's Will (A Requiem for Katrina) as well as new material, he is joined by Fabian Almazon on piano, saxophonist Brice Winston, bassist Derrick Hodge and Kendrick Scott on drums.

Blanchard's sound came to prominence in the 1980s when he became an integral part of both the Lionel Hampton Orchestra and Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers. However, in recent years he has gained global recognition as a successful composer for film - particularly for the director Spike Lee. His most recent project was a commissioned score for Lee's award-winning Hurricane Katrina documentary When the Levees Broke.

1 hour 30 minutes
