Brice Winston: Child’s Play

Brice Winston, tenor saxophonist, has been playing in Terence Blanchard‘s ensembles since 1998. This is his debut for the Criss Cross label – the band gathers some of the brightest musicians of the generation following his. There’s plenty of space for imagination and creativity and they clearly use it!

Terence Blanchard: Magnetic

When it comes to trumpet players these days, we can’t forget Terence Blanchard. Having played with Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, the musician has had successful bands, recordings and awards. His elongated and emotional lines generate vibrancy to the compositions written by the various band members. As a mentor Blanchard reveals himself unselfish – working and learning from younger musicians – one time collaborators and now leaders.
