Jazz lovers are in for a treat when world famous drummer Terri Lyne Carrington performs her Mosaic Project as part of this year’s BMW Jazz Club event at the Wielki Theater in Warsaw Nov. 8.

In February The Mosaic Project album won Carrington a Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Album. The project highlights the feminine side of jazz. Working on the album, Carrington teamed up with the world’s finest female jazz vocalists and instrumentalists such as Dianne Reeves, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Nona Hendryx, Cassandra Wilson, Esperanza Spalding and Helen Sung. Carrington’s earlier collaborations include those with prominent jazz musicians such as Dizzy Gillespie, Stan Getz, Clark Terry, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Joe Sample, Al Jarreau and Yellowjackets. In Poland, Carrington will perform with Nona Hendryx, Carmen Lundy and Urszula Dudziak who, different as they are, have been united by Carrington’s concept and their shared affection for jazz.

American vocalist Nona Hendryx is well known both as a solo performer and as a member of the Labelle trio, which was highly popular in the 1960s and 1970s. She has pursued many different musical genres, ranging from soul to hard rock.

Carmen Lundy, described by The Los Angeles Times as “a woman of many faces,” is a singer, composer, arranger, producer, painter and has also made several cameo appearances as an actress. She has received the biggest accolades for her vocal talent. She is known for her trademark progressive bebop and post-bebop renditions of songs.

Urszula Dudziak, the final piece of Carrington’s musical mosaic, is the Polish touch to this year’s BMW Jazz Club. The world-famous vocalist has an impressive vocal range coupled with spot-on intonation and inventive vocal techniques which have paved her way to international fame.

The Mosaic Project; Nov. 8, 8 p.m.
