The Mosaic Project

The Mosaic Project by Terri Lyne Carrington
Released: Jul 2011
Label: Concord Jazz
It might not be possible to get a full sense of jazz's leading women on a single recording, but drummer and bandleader Terri Lyne Carrington's project makes a worthy and disarmingly listenable effort. The roster of guests -- a multigenerational who's who including Esperanza Spalding, Dianne Reeves, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Sheila E. and Cassandra Wilson -- only begins to tell the story; the rest is laid out in a stunningly sophisticated blend of jazz, funk and pop. Among the many highlights is Wilson's sultry take on Al Green's 1972 hit "Simply Beautiful."
