Live In Concert: Terence Blanchard's 'Choices'

What do you get when you mix one of today's top jazz quintets with Lionel Loueke, Bilal and Dr. Cornel West?

That'd be Terence Blanchard's new album, Choices. It's coming out in a week and change, but tonight he premieres all of that music live in concert. The band is performing at the location where they recorded the music: the majestic library at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans. And once again, NPR Music and WBGO are on hand for a live broadcast, Web stream, and videocast. More info here: Terence Blanchard Group: Live In New Orleans
