NEW YORK  •  Jazz Standard  •  Ongoing

Jazz Standard and Blue Note Records celebrate the May 28 release of Magnetic, the new album by Terence Blanchard and his great quintet. His first release since the critically acclaimed Choices in 2009, Magnetic contains ten new compositions written by Terence or a group member. Magnetic also showcases special guest appearances from legendary bassist Ron Carter, as well as Blanchard’s Blue Note label–mates, saxophonist Ravi Coltrane and guitarist Lionel Loueke. Leader and group take a strikingly wide array of approaches throughout the album, from the blistering bop of “Don’t Run” to the fragile ballad “Jacob’s Ladder,” from the psychedelic electronic haze of “Hallucinations” to the urgent edginess of “Another Step.” In Terence Blanchard’s words, “It’s a wide range of musical ideas that come together through the efforts of the guys in the band.”

In 2007, Terence Blanchard took a giant step on his continuing creative odyssey with his Blue Note album, A Tale of God’s Will (A Requiem for Katrina). This beautiful and impassioned song cycle about the physical and emotional ravages launched by Hurricane Katrina upon Blanchard’s native city of New Orleans won the Grammy Award for Best Large Jazz Ensemble Album. Also in 2007, Terence composed and recorded his forty-first career movie score, this one for the Kasi Lemmons film Talk to Me starring Don Cheadle.
