“Carrington’s body of work has the overall feel of a tapestry that affirms life through weaving arrangements containing blues, jazz, fusion, Afro-Cuban and even world music approaches.” —New York Daily News
Three-time Grammy Award-winning jazz drummer and composer Terri Lyne Carrington leads an all-star ensemble, including vocalists Lizz Wright and Jazzmeia Horn, paying tribute to living legends Joni Mitchell, Nancy Wilson and Tina Turner.
The first woman to receive the Grammy for Best Jazz Instrumental Album in 2013, Carrington has played with a who’s who of jazz, including Dizzy Gillespie, Stan Getz, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Al Jarreau, David Sanborn, Cassandra Wilson, Carlos Santana, Grover Washington, Jr., Les McCann, Kenny Barron, Natalie Cole, Dianne Reeves, Esperanza Spalding and Angélique Kidjo.
“The synergy between Carrington and her musical friends backed by her uncanny ability to re-craft material in keeping the content relevant to today’s market...further justifies the case of why jazz music continues to flourish” (TheUrbanMusicScene).
