Friday, May 14 @ 8pm
Jazz drummer, producer, educator
NEA Jazz Master and three-time GRAMMY-winner Terri Lyne Carrington started her professional career as a “kid wonder” while studying under a full scholarship at Berklee College of Music. In the mid ’80s she worked as an in-demand drummer in New York before gaining national recognition on late night TV as the house drummer for both the Arsenio Hall Show and Quincy Jones’ VIBE TV show. While still in her 20s, Ms. Carrington toured extensively with Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock, and in 1989 released a GRAMMY®-nominated debut CD on Verve Forecast, “Real Life Story.” In 2011 she released the GRAMMY®-winning album, “The Mosaic Project” featuring a cast of all-star women instrumentalists and vocalists, and in 2013 she released, “Money Jungle: Provocative in Blue,” which also earned a GRAMMY, establishing her as the first woman ever to win in the Best Jazz Instrumental Album category. Ms. Carrington has performed on over 100 recordings and has toured or recorded with luminary artists Al Jarreau, Stan Getz, Woody Shaw, Diana Krall, Cassandra Wilson, Dianne Reeves, James Moody, Yellowjackets, Esperanza Spalding, and many more. She has been named JazzTimes Critics Polls’ Artist of the Year, Jazz Artist of the Year by the Boston Globe, and Jazz Musician of the Year by the Jazz Journalists Association. Ms. Carrington is an honorary doctorate recipient from Berklee, and currently serves as Founder and Artistic Director for the Berklee Institute of Jazz and Gender Justice. Learn more
