Festival Hub Foundry 616 hosts performances of this exciting annual festival produced in association with The Sydney Improvised Music Association.
The Sydney International Women’s Jazz Festival (SIWJF) was established in 2012 with support from the City of Sydney. Its goal is to create an annual world class international jazz festival with an emphasis on Women in Jazz, that will enthuse audiences and highlight Sydney as a major international city of music and culture.
The festival presents a remarkably diverse roster of established stars on the international jazz scene alongside a lineup of exceptionally talented local artists in a dynamic program of ticketed and free events.
Continuing the festival tonight is: TERRI LYNE CARRINGTON (USA)
“One of the finest drummers to sit behind the skins” – (okayplayer)
Celebrating 40 years in music, three-time Grammy Award–winning drummer, composer and educator, Terri Lyne Carrington started her professional career at ten years old. Featured as a “kid wonder” in publications such as People and Modern Drummer, Terri received a full scholarship to Berklee College of Music.
Throughout her extensive touring and recording career, she has worked with luminaries such as Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Al Jarreau, Stan Getz, David Sanborn, Joe Sample, Cassandra Wilson, Dianne Reeves, James Moody, Pharoah Sanders, David Murray, John Scofield, Esperanza Spalding, Yellowjackets, and countless others.
In 2005, Terri returned to her hometown where she was appointed professor at her alma mater, Berklee College of Music. She currently holds the position of Zildjian Chair in Performance, Berklee Global Jazz Institute.
In 2013, Terri Lyne Carrington made history when she became the first woman to win a Grammy Award for Best Jazz Instrumental Album, for Money Jungle: Provocative in Blue.
To date, Terri has released eight albums, most recently The Mosaic Project: LOVE and SOUL. This is the second album from Terri’s female musician–based Mosaic Project, founded to celebrate “the artistry of many women I had worked with… women that were close friends and musical partners.” This will be an electrifying opportunity to witness this ground-breaking, living jazz legend in Australia.
