Blanchard layers funky grooves and R&B to send a powerful political message. Committed to healing through music, the jazz composer-trumpeter and the E-Collective created Breathless, an album tragically inspired by the last words of Eric Garner, the Staten Island man suffocated in an altercation with police. Motivated by this experience, the E-Collective’s 2018 album Live was recorded live in Twin Cities, Cleveland, Dallas, and Harlem, all of which are cities that have been similarly wounded by racial tensions. Coinciding with these recording sessions, Blanchard worked with local community leaders to host panel discussions encouraging dialogue for positive social change. As the E-Collective ventures into uncharted territories, there is a common understanding that creation and communication generate change.

Onstage Sessions: Jazz
This season we’re introducing a new experience by transforming our stage into a New York-style jazz club and putting you right in the middle of the action. Enjoy a drink at a prime table, or wander through the crowd to mingle with friends as you enjoy jazz’s most fearless artists in an intimate experience, combining close proximity with high octane performances.
