The Carr Center: Terri Lynn Carrington, Esperanza Spalding, Ravi Coltrane

  • Garden Theater 3929 Woodward Avenue Detroit, MI, 48201 United States (map)

ACS – Allen, Carrington, Spalding – Trio was an important part of Geri Allen’s later collaborative works and served as a home base for her musically. As a trio, our goal was to expand our creative impulses using the jazz standard repertoire. We have continued this trio concept with a few different artists, consciously leaving the piano chair open. Ravi Coltrane will be joining Esperanza Spalding and Terri Lyne Carrington, honoring Geri Allen.

At this concert you will see the talent of:

Terri Lyne, award-winning drummer, composer and bandleader.

Esperanza Spalding, composer, bassist and vocalist, expansive, iterative, shape-shifting, open, and progressively innovative.

Ravi Coltrane, critically acclaimed Grammy-nominated saxophonist, bandleader, and composer.
