Terence Blanchard is a high energy performer, and, with tonight's quintet at Jazz Standard, he was propulsive. Blanchard and Brice Winston hopped right in on brass, with Winston's sax on fire. Fabian Almazan, on piano, picked up the beat, as Blanchard led pulsating blasts, and the music became atonal. The higher the brass notes, the more accentuated Kendrick Scott's drum riffs. Joe Sanders, on bass, shared many musical conversations with Scott, as the sound grew increasingly compelling. Almazan, from Cuba, added spice and clavé to the arrangements.

Blanchard's new CD, "Choices", he said, referred to choices we make in life, so he played a voiceover of Dr. Cornell West speaking lines like, "What are you ‘gonna' do with your life?". At this point, the mood waxed mellow, and the drums took a break. Blanchard was in total command of the room, with an unusually midnight sound, before Dr. West's voice could be again heard, followed by the bluesy band. The sax-trumpet conversation merged into blissful echoes.

"Autumn Leaves" was presented in a long, fragmented arrangement, with a staccato trumpet leading drums and bass. Soon Winston came in for Blanchard and twisted the theme into fluid, flashy dimensions. Almazan took a lengthy riff, abstract and explosive. In a photo finish, sax, trumpet, and piano shared the finale. Check out the Jazz Standard Website for Upcoming Events

Interview with Spike Wilner at The Small: "Jazz is a music of communication. No need for words - just musical gestures. Great jazz musicians don't need cues or charts. Real jazz is the spontaneous moment of creation...the foundation of jazz is the blues and romance and joy. Without those elements, no jazz...Jazz is a feeling - it's not vague." (Achille Brunazzi)
