, a new crime drama that examines the criminal justice system after a pair of racially charged shootings in a small Southern town; the ten-hour event series stars Sanaa Lathan (Blade
), Stephan James (Race
) and Helen Hunt as the state’s governor. But this week it’s time for some straight-up groove when Terence Blanchard featuring The E-Collective
brings its fusion of funk, R&B and blues through Texas on a three-city tour, stopping in Houston courtesy of Da Camera. Blanchard should have plenty of material to pull from when he takes the stage along with guitarist Charles Altura, pianist Fabian Almazan, bassist Donald Ramsey and drummer Oscar Seaton; Blanchard has delivered a hefty portfolio of original jazz and has composed more than 50 soundtracks. Get ready to get down and come early; at 7:15 p.m. catch a pre-concert convo with Blanchard and Jason Moran.
8 p.m. April 22. Wortham Theater Center, 501 Texas. For information, call 713-524-5050 or visit dacamera.com
