As the latest single from Waiting Game ‘If Not Now’ is released 2019 is certainly the time for Terri Lyne Carrington who is artist in residence at the EFG London Jazz Festival. The festival director Pelin Opcin sets the scene
“We at the EFG London Jazz Festival are thrilled to feature Terri Lyne Carrington as the artist in residence this year, in partnership with Kings Place as part of their Venus Unwrapped series.
“Terri Lyne is a prominent drummer, composer and producer who has been the sought-after musical director in many projects that focused on women leaders in jazz in particular.
“In her current work, Social Science, she creates a platform for experiments and interactions with musicians sharing a common language and bringing in their differences. As a major part of the residency she will invite some of the most exciting musicians from the British jazz scene for a fresh and stimulating musical experience, including saxophonist Soweto Kinch, trumpet player Emma-Jean Thackray, rapper Truemendous.
“This residency will showcase Social Science, which ‘was born from a need to express the emotions and thoughts about where we are socially, historically, politically, and spiritually. This alternative jazz band reflects a contemporary/post-modern view on music’.”
