Terri Lyne Carrington: Leading Blues-Based Jazz with a Modern Day Trio

Saturday, February 9, 2013 - 4:00pm

Catch Colors of Jazz when Host Bonnie Johnson celebrates Black History Month with the music of Terri Lyne Carrington and her new CD, Money Jungle: Provocative Blue. On the heels of her 2012 GRAMMY ® Award-winning CD, The Mosaic Project, drummer, composer and Berklee College of Music Professor Carrington reimagines pianist, composer and big band leader Duke Ellington's original recording Money Jungle with new arrangements. Carrington's album is full of surprises, incorporating spoken word by key historical figures along with original compositions laid down by stellar guest jazz artists including keyboardist Gerald Clayton and bassist Christian McBride. Fifty years after Ellington's album was released, this 21st century trio presents what Carrington describes as "fresh light and fresh energy to some of Duke’s music", which featured bassist Charles Mingus and drummer Max Roach. On Thursday, February 14th, Ms. Carrington will celebrate the album and the legacy of jazz in a concert at Berklee Performance Center in Boston featuring Clayton on piano along with Berklee students. Be sure to tune in on Saturday at 4pm to hear her story first hand.
