Terri Lyne Carrington (6 Nov) @ Kings’s Place

If you like your music with a touch of social consciousness then take a listen to the music of Terri Lyne Carrington, Grammy Award-winning drummer, producer, educator, activist.


Jazz lovers can also get a chance to see this hugely talented musician up close and personal as she’s taking up residency at King’s Place as part of this year’s EFG London Jazz Festival.


The residency will arrive close on the tail of Terri’s upcoming new album ‘Waiting Game’ – which features collaborators including Rapsody, Esperanza Spalding and fellow Grammy nominee Maimouna Youssef (The Roots and Common are fans).


The album is a politically conscious, activist response to ongoing humanitarian injustices where freedoms are restricted on the basis of someone’s sexuality, race, religion, gender or class.


The band states: “Along with a message of wakefulness, inclusiveness, and noncompliance, we’ve summoned our musical influences to offer an eclectic alternative to the mainstream. Music transcends, breaks barriers, strengthens us, and heals old wounds.


Expect to hear tracks such as ‘Waiting Game’ which explores with unflinching honesty amongst other issues, Police brutality to black Americans and ‘If Not Now’, ‘The Anthem’ which is about the ongoing gender inequality.


The second part of the set which features guests from the forefront of the UK’s jazz scene including Soweto Kinch and Emma-Jean Thackray.
