Pollstar: Terence Blanchard Returning in September to Jazz at the Bistro

SOURCE: Published:
Terence Blanchard The online touring information service Pollstar has just added a listing showing performances for trumpeter Terence Blanchard (pictured) from Wednesday, September 19 through Saturday, September 22 at Jazz at the Bistro.

Blanchard, known for his film scores for director Spike Lee as well as for his work as a jazz player and recording artist, last performed here in St. Louis in 2009 at the Bistro. That gig originally had been scheduled for February of that year, but was rescheduled twice—first to late May and then to June, when Blanchard did a four-night stand at the club.

The New Orleans native already is scheduled to be in St. Louis next month with percussionist Poncho Sanchez' band, who will perform Friday, April 20 for the Greater St. Louis Jazz Festival at the Touhill Performing Arts Center. Blanchard also was a guest last month on the national radio talk show Smiley & West to discuss his score for the recent film Red Tails.

As always, dates announced on Pollstar should not be considered confirmed until officially announced by the venue or presenter. In recent years, Jazz St. Louis has revealed their season schedule in the first part of May, so more details should be forthcoming in just a few weeks.
