Murray, Allen & Carrington Power Trio: Geri Allen, David Murray, Terri Lyne Carrington

Recording artist and producer Terri Lyne Carrington has combined forces with David Murray and Geri Allen on a new CD project, Perfection. The newly formed Murray, Allen & Carrington Power Trio will release the CD on Motéma Music on April 15. The Carrington-produced album (co-produced by Murray and Allen) was recorded in June 2015.

“I wrote ‘Geri- Rigged’ for the amazingly talented Geri Allen,” says Carrington. “She is one third of the Murray, Allen & Carrington Power Trio along with David Murray and myself. Geri and I have been playing together for over three decades. We have a strong synergy and a deep musical understanding that feels uncanny, due to having had similar reference points that helps us to know where each other are going. I tried to write something that reminded me of her and that was challenging for us as well. The Murray, Allen & Carrington Power Trio is a perfect outlet to play with two incredible musicians that push the envelope. David Murray’s credentials speak for themselves. He has accomplished more in his lifetime thus far than many people would ever dare to dream. He is a real force to reckon with and I am trying to keep up with the two of them.”
