Artist: Blanchard, Terence
Description:
Personnel: Terence Blanchard (trumpet); Brice Winston (soprano saxophone); Aaron Parks (piano); Derrick Hodge (acoustic bass); Kendrick Scott (drums); Zac Harmon (tabla). Inspired by his work on Spike Lee's WHEN THE LEVEES BROKE, a documentary about Hurricane Katrina, trumpeter Terence Blanchard embarked on his own exploration of the Katrina disaster with TALE OF GOD'S WILL (A REQUIEM FOR KATRINA). The album re-arranged four of Blanchard's tracks from the documentary, and adds nine new tracks, all of which are performed by Blanchard's crack quintet and a full string orchestra. A New Orleans native, Blanchard clearly has a profound investment in the city and its travails, and that feeling shines in the artful execution and aching beauty of the album.

  • A Clasic

    The cd comes with liner notes for each cut. Music is a classic jazz performance done with orchestra. Blanchard is a New Orleans Native and the sensitivity he brings to this work is fused through his trumpet. The phrasings are magical to hear. Very excellent piece. I would love to see this performed live. An American Jazz Classic. A must have and give it as a gift. No collection is complete now without it.
