Drummer/Producer Terri Lyne Carrington Creates A Brilliant Jazz Picture From Many Fascinating Pieces.

The Mosaic Project – set for release on July 19, 2011 – assembles an all-female cast that includes Esperanza Spalding, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Dianne Reeves, Cassandra Wilson, Nona Hendryx and many others.

For more than two decades, drummer, producer and vocalist Terri Lyne Carrington has crafted an eclectic brand of jazz that incorporates elements of bebop, soul, funk and much more. Since her debut in 1989, the GRAMMY-nominated artist has established a reputation for assembling artists of varying styles and perspectives to create music that adheres to the traditions of jazz yet speaks to a much broader and more diverse audience.

Carrington brings this same diverse sensibility to her new recording The Mosaic Project, an album that once again gathers a myriad of voices and crystallizes them into a multi-faceted whole that far outweighs the sum of its parts. The Mosaic Project, Carrington's fifth album overall and her first on Concord Jazz, is scheduled for release on July 19, 2011.

"Everything about this recording is about making a larger picture out of many various elements," says Carrington, who produced the 14-song set. "I assembled several friends -- most of whom I've performed with in the past, and all of whom bring their own individual story -- to help me create the big picture. For as talented as each of them are as individuals, when I put them all together, I have a much greater musical story -- one that can be told in an interesting and compelling way."
