Terri Lyne Carrington

Drummer, composer and producer Terri Lyne Carrington established her reputation as a pre-teen prodigy, jamming with giants and receiving a scholarship to the Berklee College of Music at age 11. She has since collaborated on the road and in studios with Herbie Hancock, Al Jarreau, Wayne Shorter, Clark Terry and many other luminaries, and she received mainstream attention on television as the house drummer on the Arsenio Hall Show and the short-lived late-night talk show Vibe. In addition to her various projects and production credits, Carrington is the artistic director of the Beantown Jazz Festival in Boston and a professor at Berklee. Her latest recording is More to Say (Real Life Story: Next Gen) on Koch. She joined JT for this interview in May, just three days after legendary pianist Hank Jones had passed.
