Terri Lyne Carrington's Mosaic Project and Cécile McLorin Salvant

Chan Shun Concert Hall
Chan Centre Presents
Presented by Chan Centre

Dynamic drummer, prolific composer, and influential bandleader Terri Lyne Carrington leads her GRAMMY Award winning Mosaic Project, a platform that brings together a diverse range of inimitable female jazz artists. This performance's all-star band includes vocalist Lizz Wright, saxophonist Tia Fuller, Nanaimo-raised trumpeter Ingrid Jensen, pianist Helen Sung, bassist Josh Hari and guitarist Matt Stevens for a rich and musically eclectic evening.

Ahead of Carrington in this electrifying co-bill is jazz songstress Cécile McLorin Salvant. Classically trained in Aix-en-Provence, France, this young singer of exceptional soul, power, and virtuosity made her mark on the scene when she won the 2010 Thelonious Monk Jazz Competition. Her GRAMMY nominated debut album, WomanChild, displays her exquisite technique, pitch-perfect phrasing and thoughtful song selection with gems from the early 20th century.

"If anyone can extend the lineage of the Big Three - Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan and Ella Fitzgerald - it's this 23-year-old virtuoso." (New York Times on Cécile, 2013)
