TONIGHT! Terence Blanchard featuring E-Collective at Rialto Center for the Arts (VIDEO)

Rialto Center for the Arts
Terence Blanchard

Georgia State's Rialto Center for the Arts presents iconic jazz trumpeter Terence Blanchard and E-Collective TONIGHT at 8 p.m. 

Many have been moved and touched by Blanchard's movie scores for such classic films as Malcolm X, Eve's Bayou, Jungle Fever as well as his Grammy-Award winning album, A Tale of God's Will (A Requiem for Katrina)

Blanchard believes “music and art have the power to change hearts and souls”— a belief brought to life through the music of Blanchard and his E-Collective.  This revolutionary ensemble thrives off the perfect mixture of Blanchard’s genius and the innovations of four young musical pioneers: guitarist Charles Altura, pianist Fabian Almazan, bassist David 'DJ' Ginyard Jr., and drummer Oscar Seaton.
