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.

    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.
