Terri Lynne Carrington’s MOSAIC PROJECT: LOVE & SOUL, WITH LEDISI
When I was growing up music was always in my home. There were albums being played on the stereo or my uncles playing the drums, piano, guitar, saxophone and singing. The drums and the saxophone have always been my favorite of all the instruments. I couldn’t believe that years later, I would meet the love of my life and he would to be a drummer. When I told my uncles that he was a drummer, the look on their faces was not pretty. When they heard him play that changed, my husband received their approval. A good drummer can make a so, so band sound great. All you jazz lover’s it’s about that time! The San Jose Jazz Festival is almost here August 7th through August 9th in downtown San Jose.
