Terence Blanchard Announces “Breathless” Album, Tour

Facebook Twitter Email


“My latest album, Breathless, is my attempt to underscore the three words: ‘I Can’t Breathe,’” 53-year-old Blanchard said in a statement. “This is our E-Collective version of a protest album, without the firebrand lyrics of Phil Ochs, but in mood and purpose.”

“I can’t breathe” were, of course, the last words of Eric Garner; who died in New York City after a police officer placed him in an illegal choke-hold. Although the medical examiner ruled Garner’s death a homicide, the police officer that choked him to death, Daniel Pantaleo, was not indited and will not stand trial for causing Garner’s death.
