Magnetic

Blue Note Records (2013)
”[The musicians] are able to take these compositions and immediately translate them into the particular sound of Terence's band, which in many ways reminds me of what used to happen with Miles.” --Herbie Hancock

“His impressive new album for Blue Note [is] a purposeful convergence of his film-composer and jazz-musician identities... The result is a melancholy suite that feels both intensely personal and broadly cinematic.” --The New York Times
