Terence Blanchard was one of the first “Young Lions” to develop his own sound, mixing in elements of Freddie Hubbard and Marsalis. Blanchard began studying piano at the tender age of five, and would also take up trumpet in 1976. Blanchard was with Lionel Hampton during 1980-1982 and then replaced Wynton Marsalis with Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers. He found fame while with Blakey during 1982-1986, and then co-led a group with Donald Harrison. Blanchard became active writing film scores for Spike Lee, including the films Do the Right Thing and Mo' Better Blues, and then wrote for Jungle Fever and Malcolm X, launching a lucrative second career.
