The Mosaic Project assembles an allfemale cast that includes some of the most prominent female jazz artists and vocalists of the last few decades: Esperanza Spalding, Dianne Reeves, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Sheila E., Nona Hendryx, Cassandra Wilson, Geri Allen, Patrice Rushen are among a list of some 20 performers! For two decades the GRAMMY nominated drummer, producer and vocalist Terri Lyne Carrington has crafted an eclectic brand of jazz that incorporates elements of bebop, soul and funk. Building a reputation for assembling artists of varying styles and perspectives to create music that adheres to the traditions of jazz, yet speaks to a more diverse audience. This same diverse sensibility informs The Mosaic Project, Carrington's fifth album [her first for Concord Jazz], it crystallises the group into a multifaceted whole that outweighs the sum of its parts.
