The Terence Blanchard Group – Choices


Famed trumpeter Terence Blanchard, one of today’s most influential jazz musicians, presents his Concord Jazz debut, Choices; an extraordinary piece of work that addresses the choices we all make in life – both as a society and on a personal level. The album features longstanding Blanchard band members Fabian Almazan on piano, Derrick Hodge on saxophone, Kendrick Scott on drums, Lionel Loueke on guitar and Walter Smith III on saxophone – all of whom significantly contributed to the album’s compositions. Featured guest artists include Dr. Cornel West [famed writer, speaker, educator and activist] and Bilal [singer, musician, composer]. Choices was recorded live at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans from March 5-8, 2009.
