Jazz Celebration Weekend
Lawrence University presents Terri Lyne Carrington's Mosaic Project featuring vocalist Lizz Wright, saxophonist Tia Fuller, trumpeter Ingrid Jensen, pianist Rachel Z, guitarist Matt Stevens & bassist Josh Hari.
Grammy® Award-winning drummer, composer and bandleader, Terri Lyne Carrington, released The Mosaic Project in July 2011, her fifth recording overall and first on Concord Jazz. The record won a GRAMMY® Award for Best Jazz Vocal Album, gathered a myriad of voices and crystallized them into a multi-faceted whole that far outweighed the sum of its parts. She produced the 14-song set which featured some of the most prominent female jazz artists of the last few decades: Esperanza Spalding, Dianne Reeves, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Sheila E., Nona Hendryx, Cassandra Wilson, Geri Allen and several others.
