Terence Blanchard: Magnetic

Album image

Terence Blanchard wrote a letter of recommendation to WBGO on my behalf thirteen years ago.  That simple gesture of supporting, encouraging and nurturing youthful energy and ambition remains one of the most powerful testaments to Blanchard's career, and it is far more potent in every performance of his band.  

This recording, Magnetic, is due for release on Tuesday May 28th on Blue Note Records.  Terence and the quintet perform live on WBGO at 2pm that afternoon.  Then New York audiences get five consecutive evenings at Jazz Standard. 

Magnetic features pianist Fabian Almazan, bassist Joshua Crumbly, drummer Kendrick Scott, and saxophonist Brice Winston.  Labelmates Ravi Coltrane and Lionel Loueke guest. 
So does bassist Ron Carter.

All reasons why you should have a listen. The law of attraction demands it.  - Josh Jackson
