The Faculty of Music is thrilled to welcome drummer, composer, producer, and educator Terri Lyne Carrington as this year’s John and Claudine Bailey Distinguished Visitor in Jazz. A four-time GRAMMY Award winner, including a Best Jazz Instrumental Album award for 2013’s Money Jungle: Provocative in Blue, Carrington began her professional career at the age of 10 and received a full scholarship to Berklee College of Music at age 11. She has performed on over 100 recordings and toured and recorded with luminaries such as Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Al Jarreau, Esperanza Spalding. Her current band, Terri Lyne Carrington + Social Science, released their debut album, Waiting Game, in 2019, addressing social issues including mass incarceration, police brutality, homophobia, the rights of indigenous peoples, political imprisonment, and gender equity. Carrington is the founder and artistic director of the Berklee Institute of Jazz and Gender Justice in Boston, and the artistic director for the Carr Center in Detroit.
