A real standout from trumpeter Terence Blanchard
– and a record that arguably helped set the tone for lots of Blue Note albums in years to come by a variety of younger artists! The album's produced by Herbie Hancock – who still really lets Blanchard
's horn and musical vision take the lead, but also receive a bit more careful, creative treatment in the overall approach to the record – especially that great talent for blending styles and influences that Herbie's had in his own music for most of his career! In addition to soulful lead lines from Terence
, the set also features work Lionel Loueke on guitar, Aaron Parks on keyboards, Bruce Winston on tenor and soprano, Derrick Hodge on bass, and Kendrick Scott on drums – and Herbie Hancock and singer Gretchen Parlatto each guest on a tune. Titles include "Wandering Wonder", "Harvesting Dance", "Over There", "Child's Play", "The Source", "Benny's Tune", and "Wadagbe".
