Jazz in Film is a studio album by Terence Blanchard released in 1999 on Sony Records. The album was meant to be a portrait of jazz in cinema history, a way to chronicle the evolution of jazz score from the late 1940s to present day, and features highly influential themes from classics like Anatomy of a Murder, Taxi Driver and seminal noir The Man With the Golden Arm. Blanchard carves out a little space for himself, revisiting one of his compositions written for Spike Lee's Clockers. The albums features an all-star lineup; veteran saxophonist Joe Henderson and pianist Kenny Kirkland, amongst others.
