PhotobucketAfter an extensive touring career of over 20 years with luminaries like Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Al Jarreau, Stan Getz, David Sanborn, Joe Sample, Cassandra Wilson, Clark Terry, Dianne Reeves and more, she returned to her hometown where she was appointed professor at her alma mater, Berklee College of Music. Terri Lyne received an honorary doctorate from Berklee College of Music in 2003. After moving to New York in 1983, for 5 years she was a much in-demand musician, working with James Moody, Lester Bowie, Pharoah Sanders, and others. In the late 80's she relocated to Los Angeles, where she gained recognition on late night TV as the house drummer for the "Arsenio Hall Show," then again in the late 90's as the drummer on the Quincy Jones late night TV show, "VIBE," hosted by Sinbad. After a hiatus from the U.S. recording scene as a solo recording artist, in 2009 Terri Lyne returned with "More To Say...(Real Life Story: NextGen)." She performs with friends and colleagues with whom she has been working with in her 20-year-plus career. Joining Carrington for the meticulously produced More to Say is an impressive all-star cast of jazz and contemporary jazz instrumentalists, including George Duke, Everette Harp, Kirk Whalum, Jimmy Haslip, Greg Phillingaines, Gregoire Maret, Christian McBride, Danilo Perez, Patrice Rushen, Robert Irving III (who also serves as co-producer), Chuck Loeb, Tineke Postma, Ray Fuller, Dwight Sills, Anthony Wilson, and a special appearance by her dad, Sonny Carrington, on tenor. In addition, Carrington collaborates with esteemed vocalist Nancy Wilson for the song, "Imagine This."
