If all that could be written about Terri Lyne Carrington was on this page, we'd be here for days. Bandleader, Composer, Drummer, Entrepreneur, Producer...and inspiration for hundreds across the states and beyond.

A little girl had a dream that she would be a drummer like her Grandfather, Matt Carrington, who played for Fats Waller and Chuck Berry. When she was given drums at the age of 7, she never looked back.

Flash forward... to a long and amazing career that has included touring and/or performing with Dizzy Gillespie, Herbie Hancock, David Sanborn, Al Jarreau, Stan Getz, the Yellowjackets, Joe Sample, Wayne Shorter (just this Summer) and so many other top-of-mind Jazz, etc. artists. Oh, and the house drummer for the Arsenio Hall TV Show, as well as - well, it's mindblowing.

Just as this latest project is from TLC :) "The Mosaic Project" is why Terri Lyne is stopping by CJC this Monday, September 19th. Each of the 14 songs on this CD is a work of art - just as the cover art you see here. An all female collaboration, Terri makes a series of statements about empowering women - with some formidable assistance. Released in July of this year, the stellar contributors to Mosaic include two of Terri Lyne's girlhood inspirations: Dianne Reeves and Angela Davis. Cassandra Wilson, Gretchen Parlato, Nona Hendryx and Esperanza Spadling. I'll stop right there!

 7 p.m. Monday Eastern U.S. time. It's a way beyond Cool Jazz Conversation with the internationally embraced Terri Lyne Carrington
