With her pedigree and level of accomplishment, Terri Lyne Carrington could be described in many ways.

She’s a drummer, composer and producer. She’s a multiple Grammy winner and an NEA Jazz Master. She’s an educator, artistic director, motivator, activist and trailblazer.

And on International Women’s Day, it’s even more noteworthy to point out the work she’s done and continues to do as the founder and artistic director of the Berklee Institute of Jazz and Gender Justice and the artistic director of Next Jazz Legacy.

Carrington joined us to talk more about her initiatives in working toward gender equity in jazz and beyond.
