Dcist's Sriram Gopal reviews Jazz trumpeter and composer Terence Blanchard latest CD release. This month marks the second anniversary of Hurricane Katrina's assault upon the city of New Orleans. Blanchard's latest release on the Blue Note label, entitled A Tale of God's Will (A Requiem for Katrina), is a somber and plaintive look back on how Mother Nature and the country at large betrayed a great American city.
Terence Blanchard will be performing at Blues Alley this Thursday through Sunday with daily 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. sets. Tickets here $27.50 + $10 food/drink minimum.
