I was really surprised to find that no other reviews were listed for this recording. Jazz trumpeter Terence Blanchard has been a prolific writer and many of his recordings have been critically acclaimed. "Romantic Defiance" (oh how I love the CD title and the individual track titles) was released in between "In My Solitude: The Billie Holiday Songbook" and "The Heart Speaks." If you like Post-Bop or Straight-Ahead Jazz you will enjoy this instrumental. Blanchard wears/has worn many hats throughout his career: film score composer, arranger, band leader, teacher, and musician. But what I like best are these solo albums that showcase his writing and playing. This one fits the bill.

Unbelievable that 20 years have passed since this reléase. And even more unbelievable that it has only one review. The floating, lyrical, moody compositions at the centre of the álbum are bookmarked by New Orleans workouts. This still has me listening 20 years later and that is saying alot.
