Default Terence Blanchard

Terence Blanchard's latest release, "A Tale of God's Will" is an evocative emotional journey of a city whose spirit lives on through the most devastating of circumstances - as told through the musical genius of one of New Orleans' proudest residents – Terence Blanchard. This marks the 2nd release for Terence on the famed Blue Note Label and was composed for Spike Lee's HBO documentary, "When The Levees Broke."

What are people saying about "A Tale of God's Will: A Requiem for Katrina"

"With his soulful new album, Blanchard continues his crusade to revitalize his hometown… a purposeful convergence of his film-composer and jazz-musician identities… a melancholy suite that feels both intensely personal and broadly cinematic."

—The New York Times

"…a triumph, an extended jazz suite that evokes a tragedy without words and inspires emotions worthy of its subject."

—Washington Post

"Blanchard is a powerful storyteller. He doesn't need words to express anger, frustration, heartbreak, resolve, hope or love—just a trumpet."


"[Blanchard] delivers his compelling and poignant reflections on the catastrophe… In the tunes, there is anger and angst, lush melody and woeful wails, pockets of grace and flood waters of melancholy."

He has done most of Spike Lee's soundtracks. INSIDE MAN was a great soundtrack. A retro sound without resorting to clichés.

“A cynic by experience, a romantic by inclination and now a hero by necessity.”
