Classic Album Sundays founder and BBC 6music host Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy will be joined by EFG London Jazz Festival artist in residence Terri Lyne Carrington to take in an in depth look at one of Terri’s favourite albums, Nina Simone Black Gold.
Terri will be interviewed on her love of the album and why it has endured as a masterpiece. This will be followed by a full playback of the album on our audiophile soundsystem. The event will conclude with a Q&A with the audience allowing fans to ask questions of their own.
Terri is a legendary American drummer, composer, singer, and producer who has worked with the likes of Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Dianne Reeves and Esperanza Spalding amongst others.
She will be taking up residence over the first weekend of the festival in Kings Place, as part of their Venus Unwrapped series, in what will be her first EFG London Jazz festival appearance since 2016.
Her outfit, Social Science in her own words ‘.. 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’ . It is an eclectic stylistic blend, borrowing from jazz, indie rock, contemporary classical, hip hop, and free improvisation. It’s jazz for the eclectic listener, reflecting the musical and social atmosphere of today.
