Trumpeter and composer Terence Blanchard breaks the mold with his quintet, The E-Collective. This project journeys to an exciting realm of grooved fusion teeming with funk, R&B, and blues colors. For this program, Blanchard is joined by guitarist Charles Altura, bassist David “DJ” Ginyard, Jr., Fabian Almazan on piano and synths, and Oscar Seaton on drums. Music from his new release, LIVE (April 20, 2018), was recorded live on the road and in cities wounded by gun violence and racial tensions.
