Terence Blanchard

In a programme first broadcast in 2008, Michael Berkeley meets the New Orleans-born trumpeter Terence Blanchard, who became a leading figure in the Jazz Resurgence movement of the 1980s, and has since pursued a highly successful dual career as performer and as composer of film scores, especially for director Spike Lee. He is currently artistic director of the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz in New Orleans. His choices include works by Stravinsky, Debussy, Richard Strauss, Gershwin and Weather Report.
