Bounce is a 2003 jazz album by Terence Blanchard, released through Blue Note.


Bounce is the Blue Note recording debut of trumpeter and composer Terence Blanchard. The album is a mix of the sounds of Africa, Brazil and America, with the styles of swing, hard bop, free form, groove and early 70's fusion. The Grammy Award winner Terence Blanchard is the musician who in the 1980s played the trumpet for bands led by jazz luminaries Lionel Hampton and Art Blakey. Blanchard also wrote music scores for films such as Spike Lee's Jungle Fever (1991), Clockers (1995), 4 Little Girls (1997), 25th Hour (2003), and the highly acclaimed Malcolm X (1992).
