PODCAST: Terri Lyne Carrington

Berklee Office of Communications
August 4, 2009

Drummer, composer, and producer Terri Lyne Carrington always seems to be ahead of the curve. She began her Berklee studies at the age of 13 and was touring with jazz legends like Clark Terry before she was out of her teens. After more than 20 years of touring with luminaries like Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Al Jarreau, and Cassandra Wilson, she returned to her alma mater to join the faculty.

Carrington's debut CD, which featured Carlos Santana, Grover Washington Jr., and Dianne Reeves, earned a Grammy nomination. This month's podcast is a tune—"Sherwood Forest"—from her latest release, More to Say (Real Life Story: Next Gen). The track also features her cowriter George Duke on keyboards and bassist Christian McBride.
