Celebrity Series PresentsTerence Blanchard, Featuring the E-Collective
Terence Blanchard and the E-Collective thrive off the mixture of Blanchard’s acumen and the innovations of four young musical pioneers: guitarist Charles Altura, pianist Fabian Almazan, bassist David “DJ” Ginyard Jr., and drummer Oscar Seaton Jr.
While recording scores for Spike Lee’s Inside Man and Kasi Lemmons’s Talk to Me, Blanchard and Seaton first dreamed of a band that layered grooves teeming with funk, R&B, and blues. Years later, that dream came to fruition, forming the foundation for the E-Collective’s signature sound.
“Music and art have the power to change hearts and souls,” notes Blanchard.
