ACS: Geri Allen, Terri Lyne Carrington, Esperanza Spalding

Hypnotic, bold and stylish contemporary jazz.

7:30 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 15

ACS is pianist Geri Allen, drummer Terri Lyne Carrington and bassist/vocalist Esperanza Spalding; three groundbreaking musicians whose careers intersect across the landscape of contemporary jazz.

Geri Allen is an internationally renowned composer and pianist. Since 1982 she has recorded, performed or collaborated with Ravi Coltrane, Dianne Reeves, Bill Cosby, Ron Carter, Ornette Coleman and many others.

Drummer Terri Lyne Carrington has been at the top of the music industry for almost 25 years, collaborating with Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Al Jarreau, Stan Getz, David Sanborn, Joe Sample, Cassandra Wilson, Clark Terry, Nancy Wilson, George Duke, Dianne Reeves and more.

In one of the most stunning achievements in jazz history, bassist Esperanza Spalding captured the world's attention upon earning the title of Best New Artist at the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards. A gifted performer with a hypnotic voice, Spalding stretches the boundaries of jazz.
