My wife and I have really been looking forward to tonight's concert featuring Terence Blanchard. From scoring films, to putting out grade-A albums, to contributing time and efforts to the Monk Institute, Blanchard has forged a career that should be exemplary for all up-and-coming musicians. As a former horn player, or more specifically, a former Miles Davis wannabe, it's going to be quite an experience to finally have the chance to see Blanchard en vivo. As far as I understand, Blanchard will be playing selections from his newest album A Tale of God's Will, which has been called a requiem, exploring the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
