Terri Lyne Carrington is a three-time Grammy-winning drummer, composer, Berklee College of Music professor, and founder and artistic director of the Jazz and Gender Justice Institute. In 2014 Carrington was the first woman to win a Grammy Award in the Best Jazz Instrumental Album category for Money Jungle: Provocative In Blue, a reimagining of the Duke Ellington classic. Carrington comes to the Library of Congress to talk about gender equality in the jazz world. In an interview, Carrington mentioned that her passion for this topic started when, at a meeting, students openly expressed the difficulties and challenges that women face in the male-dominated jazz industry. Since then, Carrington has made this subject one of her passions and motivations. “What would jazz sound like in a culture without patriarchy?” This is one of the anchor questions Carrington will discuss with her audience in an open dialogue.
