Multiple Grammy-winning trumpeter and composer Terence Blanchard is the 2017 Burlington Discover Jazz Festival Artist-in-residence. In addition to engaging with the community through educational events and presentations, Blanchard performs with his new quintet, the E-Collective. This groove-focused outfit draws inspiration more from Weather Report, Funkadelic, and Prince than from Lionel Hampton or Art Blakey, with whom Blanchard performed in the ‘80s. Some of Blanchard’s most notable compositions underpin Spike Lee’s “joints.” In addition to his work on Do the Right Thing and Mo’ Better Blues, Blanchard has composed every Lee score since ’91’s Jungle Fever. On his latest effort, Breathless, Blanchard and his E-Collective tour through grooved fusion with stops at pop (Coldplay’s Midnight), country (Hank Williams’ I Ain’t Got Nuthin’ But Time), and in the streets of Staten Island, with a powerful trumpet-toned protest honoring Eric Garner’s last words.
