As one of the leading contemporary trumpet players, Terence Blanchard is admired by famous colleagues, such as Roy Hargrove. Furthermore, he cannot be ignored as a film composer, since 1990 for Spike Lee and recently for George Lucas. But first and foremost Blanchard has the gift of storytelling and evoking deep emotions; his album A Tale of God’s Will, about the aftermath of hurricane Katrina, has earned him a Grammy. ‘Bold, modern jazz that’s respectful of tradition and served with style and emotion’ (Wall Street Journal).
After the concert, the Bimhuis Café is open (free entrance).
