Terri Lyne Carrington
Sorry for the lack of posting lately. Been on the road between Toronto and Montreal lately and last weekend was quite busy between gigging with "Barbados First Lady of Jazz", Cici Duke and hosting the Broken City Jazz Jam with Ralf Buschmeyer and Dale James (ummm...why didn't ANY drummers show up to sit in and play??? Thank you to the two very talented young bassists and trombone player who did, however, come to play.)
Some pretty amazing footage here of a very young and talented Terri Lyne Carrington in action from a late 70s children's television series:
Also nice to see her mentors Keith Copeland and Clark Terry also featured in that one.
As you can see, Terri is still playing great today (!) Here she is in a tribute to Roy Haynes:
