When four-time Grammy Award-winning jazz trumpeter Terence Blanchard closes the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, accompanying him Sunday will be two young artists hoping to glean a bit of insider information from a veteran performer who's allowing them a rare glimpse of what their lives could look like.
