Terri Lyne Carrington • TLC And Friends

 



Review by Matt Collar
Recorded in 1981, just a few months after her 16th birthday, TLC & Friends captures Grammy-winning drummer Terri Lyne Carrington at the inception of her career. Here, she is joined by an all-star cadre of veterans, including saxophonist George Coleman, pianist Kenny Barron, and bassist Buster Williams. Also lending his warm support is her father, saxophonist Sonny Carrington, who jumps in at the end for a jovial take on Sonny Rollins' "Sonny Moon for Two." Although essentially her debut album, TLC & Friends was never widely available, recorded primarily as a showcase for the Medford, Massachusetts-born jazz prodigy, who was by then already a student at the Berklee College of Music. Most people would be introduced to Carrington either by her more commercial-leaning 1989 studio album, Real Life Story, or her much lauded work for artists like Wayne Shorter, Cassandra Wilson, and Mulgrew Miller, among others. Of course, by then she had developed into a highly adept crossover star, just as likely to lay down a clipped funk groove as a swinging cymbal rhythm. TLC & Friends takes you back to her nascent early days of blowing sessions when Carrington was clearly trying to prove her mettle against the hard bop jazz tradition. Of that she leaves no doubt, tearing into standards like "What Is This Thing Called Love" and "Seven Steps to Heaven" with the muscular ferocity of Art Blakey, her crackling cymbal pushing Coleman to ever throaty heights. Particularly exciting is her one original composition, the Latin-tinged "La Bonita," whose dusky, minor-key melody nicely evokes the noir-ish '70s post-bop of artists like Woody Shaw and Art Pepper. She also takes a joyously kinetic solo on another Sonny Rollins classic, "St. Thomas," revealing just how much of a percussion virtuoso she already was as a teenager.

Reseña de Matt Collar
Grabado en 1981, pocos meses después de cumplir 16 años, TLC & Friends recoge a la baterista Terri Lyne Carrington, ganadora de un Grammy, en los inicios de su carrera. Aquí se le une un grupo de veteranos como el saxofonista George Coleman, el pianista Kenny Barron y el bajista Buster Williams. También presta su cálido apoyo su padre, el saxofonista Sonny Carrington, que salta al final para una jovial versión de "Sonny Moon for Two" de Sonny Rollins. Aunque en esencia fue su álbum de debut, TLC & Friends nunca llegó a estar ampliamente disponible, ya que se grabó principalmente como escaparate para la prodigio del jazz nacida en Medford, Massachusetts, que por entonces ya era estudiante en el Berklee College of Music. La mayoría de la gente conocería a Carrington por su álbum de estudio de 1989, Real Life Story, de carácter más comercial, o por sus elogiados trabajos para artistas como Wayne Shorter, Cassandra Wilson y Mulgrew Miller, entre otros. Por supuesto, para entonces ya se había convertido en una estrella crossover muy hábil, tan capaz de marcar un ritmo funk recortado como un balanceo de platillos. TLC & Friends nos transporta a sus primeros días de sesiones de blowing, cuando Carrington estaba claramente intentando demostrar su valía frente a la tradición del hard bop jazz. De eso no deja ninguna duda, desgarrando en estándares como "What Is This Thing Called Love" y "Seven Steps to Heaven" con la ferocidad muscular de Art Blakey, su címbalo crepitante empujando a Coleman a alturas cada vez más guturales. Especialmente emocionante es su única composición original, "La Bonita", con tintes latinos, cuya melodía oscura y en clave menor evoca el post-bop noir de los 70 de artistas como Woody Shaw y Art Pepper. Thomas", un clásico de Sonny Rollins, en el que revela lo virtuosa que era con la percusión cuando era adolescente.
