Book Review: Terence Blanchard & the E-Collective "Breathless"

Trumpeters love nothing more than soloing over a great rhythm section, and on Breathless, bass machine Donald Ramsey and drummer Oscar Seaton give New Orleans-born trumpeter/film composer Terence Blanchard everything he could ever want—and then some.

Trumpeters love nothing more than soloing over a great rhythm section, and on Breathless, bass machine Donald Ramsey and drummer Oscar Seaton give New Orleans-born trumpeter/film composer Terence Blanchard everything he could ever want—and then some. With rock-solid grooves, perfect tone, and enviable authority, Ramsey puts the fire under Blanchard’s sumptuous fusion and helps connect the album’s contemporary hip-hop, R&B, rock, funk, and gospel flavors.
