Virtuoso trumpeter, winner of the 2014 Miles Davis Award, Terence Blanchard once again honours us with his presence. The New Orleans musician and composer habitually surrounds himself with talented young instrumentalists to weave a modern jazz sound deeply coloured by hard bop and gleaming with technical chops and musicality. The curtain rises on the Gentiane MG trio, inspired by diverse influences, from contemporary jazz to classical music.
