Terence Blanchard has established himself among the most influential jazz musicians and film score masters, collaborating with film directors such as Spike Lee. He is a member of a jazz legacy that has helped to shape the contours of modern jazz today. As an educator, he leads and inspires the next generation of jazz artists.
A true "renaissance artist" with more than 29 albums to his credit, Blanchard, a New Orleans native and a five-time Grammy Award-winner, is "one of the most distinctive trumpet players of his generation" (The Village Voice).

I love jazz because I am a singer and jazz inspires me.
I was first exposed to jazz when I was a baby. I grew up in a a musical family.
The best show I ever attended was Dianne Reeves with Romero Lubambo in Rio de janeiro, and Youn Sun Nah at the Vancouver
Jazz festival in 2010.
The first jazz record I bought was Sarah Vaughan.
My advice to new listeners is keep your ears and heart opened for good music.
