Summary:
Jazz trumpeter and composer Terence Oliver Blanchard was born on March 13, 1962, in New Orleans, Louisiana. He studied at the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts, and then at Rutgers University while touring with the Lionel Hampton Orchestra. In the 1980s, Blanchard served as trumpeter and musical director for Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers and co-led a quintet with saxophonist Donald Harrison, recording five albums. In 1991, Blanchard recorded and released his self-titled debut album for Columbia Records. He also started to compose scores for Spike Lee's films in the early 1990s, beginning with Jungle Fever. Blanchard composed over fifty film scores for Lee and other directors. Blanchard also served as artistic director of the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz and the Henry Mancini Institute. He has won five Grammy Awards. Blanchard premiered his first opera, Champion, in 2013; and, in 2015, he released his album Breathless.
