Description

For his latest release on Blue Note Records,

Breathless , Terence Blanchard powerfully and playfully journeys into another jazz realm with his new band, The E-Collective, in an exciting zone of grooved fusion teeming with funk, r&b and blues colors. Produced by the trumpeter and his manager Robin Burgess and executive produced by Blue Note president Don Was, the adventurous 13-tune recording zeroes in on several Blanchard originals, an epic-length piece by Almazan and a scattering of covers, sung by soothing and soulful vocalist P.J. Morton (a member of the band Maroon 5), including an exhilarating take on the modern standard "Compared to What” made famous by Les McCann and Eddie Harris, and the soul-vibed and lyrical take on "I Ain’t Got Nothin' But Time," penned by Hank Williams.

It’s a first foray into straight-up grooveland for Blanchard, and he’s thrilled with the dance-steeped party he and his quintet (and guests) have cooked up. “Breathless is the album I’ve been wanting to do for quite awhile,” he says. “Growing up I was listening to the Head Hunters and Weather Report, which had a strong effect on me.”
