Jazz in Film is a studio album by American tumpeter Terence Blanchard released on March 2, 1999 via Sony Records.[2]


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, including veteran saxophonist Joe Henderson and pianist Kenny Kirkland, amongst others, backed by a string orchestra arranged by Blanchard.[3]
