Terence Blanchard E-Collective

- The E-Collective: Blanchard’s newest project, a plugged-in outfit featuring rising talents such as Fabian Almazan, Charles Altura, Donald Ramsey, and Oscar Seaton
- Their Recordings: their first album, Breathless, dropped in May 2015, and AllMusic called it “jaw-dropping artistry and soulful creativity… delivered in a vibrant, electric style.”
Dubbed the "nation's finest jazz and supper club" by the New York Times, Blues Alley is a feast for ears, eyes, and bellies. The venue treats music lovers to jazz, blues, and soul from the who's who of the music scene—the18th-century red brick building has soaked up the notes of luminaries such as Dizzy Gillespie, Nancy Wilson, and Grover Washington, Jr. In keeping with the tradition of the jazz clubs and libraries of the 1920s and '30s, patrons are asked to keep their conversations to a whisper to ensure that everyone enjoys the show. Ears are usually too full of tunes and mouths too full of Creole cuisine to leave room for interruption, anyway. Blues Alley's menu makes sure of that with dishes such as jambalaya and barbecue ribs.
