The Mosaic Project" is a celebration of female artists with Terri Lyne being joined by some of today's most celebrated female instrumentalists and vocalists in the world, 'women with voices,' coming together to support and celebrate each other from a musical and social perspective.

Terri Lyne is joined by Dianne Reeves, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Nona Hendryx, Cassandra Wilson, Esperanza Spalding, Helen Sung, Tineke Postma, Geri Allen, Patrice Rushen, Ingrid Jensen, Sheila E., and Gretchen Parlato.

 

"The Mosaic Project" is a beautiful gathering of great female artists, yet the beauty is also in the fact that you don't hear gender. You hear many strong musical ideas based in jazz, performed on the highest of levels. For me there is magic in every piece because of the incredible line up of players and guest artists. Though it is my project, it is the personalities, the lives, and the talent of all of these women that make this project so special and indeed a group offering and unique statement we made together based on common, yet diverse, points of view.

These are my friends, mostly old friends, and some new friends ... and this is a mosaic of colors, shapes and textures, making a picture that I hope is informative and enjoyable to our fans."

 

"Mosaic Project" is cross generational, cross cultural and 'cross genre' in nature, which is pertinent because jazz has increasingly pollinated, allowing it's language to metamorphose into something one group of people alone cannot claim.
