Drummer Terri Lyne Carrington, trumpeter Ingrid Jensen, pianist Geri Allen, vocalists Lizz Wright and Gretchen Parlato, and just-added saxophonist Tia Fuller are all headliners in their own right, but they’ll be performing as a unit when Ms. Carrington’s Mosaic Project band takes the stage for the second concert in this year’s Isthmus Jazz Series in perhaps the most highly-anticipated jazz event of the season. Ms. Carrington is the first woman to win a Grammy in the Best Jazz Instrumental Album category, for her 2013 CD “Money Jungle: Provocative in Blue,” and her Mosaic Project CD took the Best Jazz Vocal Album Grammy in 2011.

PERCUSSION WORKSHOP WITH TERRI LYNE CARRINGTON. In this pre-concert program produced by Madison Music Collective, attendees will get to know Ms. Carrington and what it’s like to lead a band from the drums. She’ll speak about her experience coming up through the jazz ranks, how she was received on the scene as a young female drummer, and what it means to “set the groove,” in the process demonstrating some of her unique grooves, blends, and hybrids. She’ll also discuss her current projects, including the evolution of her Mosaic Project and why she chose the musicians she chose. Attendees will also have a chance to have their questions answered by Ms. Carrington.
3:00-4:30 PM, UW Memorial Union’s Shannon Hall.
