Grammy Award–winning drummer, composer, and bandleader Terri Lyne Carrington has toured extensively with luminaries like Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Al Jarreau, Stan Getz, and David Sanborn, to name just a few. Now a professor at her alma mater, Berklee, and recipient of an honorary doctorate from Berklee, Carrington released The Mosaic Project in 2011. The critically acclaimed CD, which won a Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal Album, gathered a myriad of voices and crystallized them into a multifaceted whole that far outweighed the sum of its parts. She produced the 14-song set, which included some of the most prominent female jazz artists of the last few decades such as Esperanza Spalding, Dianne Reeves, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Sheila E., and Cassandra Wilson, among others.
For this year's Berklee Beantown Jazz Festival, soul/R&B singer Jaguar Wright will join the Mosaic Project to perform.
