Celebrating International Jazz Day!

“Music and art have the power to change hearts and souls,” expresses composer and trumpeter Terence Blanchard — a belief brought to life through the music of Blanchard and his E-Collective. This revolutionary ensemble thrives off the perfect mixture of Blanchard’s genius and the innovations of four young musical pioneers: guitarist Charles Altura, pianist Taylor Eigsti, bassist David “DJ” Ginyard Jr., and drummer Oscar Seaton. It was while recording the scores for Spike Lee’s Inside Man and Kasi Lemmons’ Talk to Me that Blanchard and Seaton first dreamt of a band that layered grooves teeming with funk, R&B, and blues colors. Years later, that dream came to fruition and formed the foundation for the E-Collective’s signature sound. The group’s new album is titled LIVE – its double-meaning references that the album was recorded live on the road and in cities wounded by gun violence and racial tensions. Join us in the courtyard before the concert for appetizers from American Abalone Farm‘s pop-up kitchen!
