As one of the young jazz lions the New Orleans trumpet player Terence Blanchard procured himself a spot in Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers. Next to a solo career, which he started in the nineties with a couple of jazz albums, he was given an ever increasing number of movie assignments. With more than 40 soundtracks to his name, Blanchard is the most important Afro-American composer of movie music. He's the in-house composer of moviemaker Spike Lee (Malcolm X, Clockers, Inside Man). "The Movie Music of Spike Lee and Terence Blanchard" is a prestigious project, celebrating the partnership of Lee and Blanchard. Blanchard, who not long ago composed the music for Spike Lee's fourhour- documentary When the Levees Broke about hurricane Katrina, performs with his quintet, the Metropole Orkest conducted by Vince Mendoza and three guest vocalists: Jamie Cullum, Bilal and Patti Austin. The project shows manipulated still images from ten of Spike's films plus one powerful moving clip from Malcolm X.
