Terri Lyne Carrington presents an evening of jazz tunes composed by women – now there’s an idea. For too long, jazz standards – the tunes that dominate jazz repertory and that young musicians are taught to master – have almost exclusively been composed by men. From “My Funny Valentine” to “Maiden Voyage,” they are beloved compositions. But where are the women? As founder and artistic director of the Berklee Institute for Jazz and Gender Justice, Carrington has curated a newly published compilation of New Standards composed by women, including Carla Bley, Cassandra Wilson, Marilyn Crispell, Lil Hardin Armstrong, Eliane Elias, Jaime Branch, Luciana Souza, Hiromi, Emily Remler, Anat Cohen, and others. Tonight’s program draws from this compilation as Carrington challenges inequity and forges a new legacy for jazz – a world of jazz without patriarchy.

The master drummer is a musical bridge builder, bandleader and activist. Over a 40-year career, she has collaborated with Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Nancy Wilson, David Murray, Dianne Reeves, Stan Getz, Dianne Reeves, Esperanza Spalding and countless others. A champion of gender rights in jazz, she is the only woman ever to win a GRAMMY for best jazz instrumental album.
