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. In 2008, Blanchard won a Grammy for his CD, A Tale of God’s Will (A Requiem for Katrina), a beautifully haunting and impassioned song cycle about Hurricane Katrina and the ravages incurred upon the City of New Orleans and its residents.
